June 2022: Jubilee Joy at Derwent

07/07/2022

Derwent Newsletter: June Edition

Wow, what a month June was – jam-packed with celebrations which our residents and teams thoroughly enjoyed! We kickstarted the month by joining the whole country for her majesty’s Platinum Jubilee – from cakes to costumes, we danced till we dropped to enjoy what was truly a once in a lifetime event. We then continued the colourful festivities by replacing the union jacks with rainbows as we boasted our boldest colours to support Pride month!

As always, our amazing staff went above and beyond to ensure all our celebrations were the best they could be for our residents and it’s safe to say we didn’t want to the month to end! 

Roll on summer, and long may the good times last!
