King Charles III Coronation

Saturday 6 May 2023

Given the historic occasion, everyone at Northcote Lodge was keen to celebrate the King’s Coronation.

Our Front of House and Café area were suitably decorated with bunting and Union Jacks, making us feel and look very patriotic!

On the special day, our residents gathered in the café area to watch proceedings on the television. They were treated to tea and coffee and a slice of ‘Coronation cake’, which was very kindly donated by Aberdeen City Council along with specially drawn pictures and bunting made by local school children. Our activities assistant Anne and Marian – our chef, were on hand to serve the delicious cake. Soup and sandwiches were also served in the Café for lunch, to allow the residents to watch the full ceremony and the King’s procession back to Buckingham Palace.

In the afternoon, a special ‘Coronation Party’ was held in the activities room to carry on with the celebrations. Music was provided by Fred, who is a special friend of everyone at Northcote and often entertain us at special events. All in all, everyone had a lovely day!

‘God Save the King!’
