Residents Create Royal Ascot Millinery

In honour of Royal Ascot last week, our residents fashioned their very own hats in keeping with the strict sartorial rules the horse racing event is famous for.

Our leisure and wellness coordinator Margaret helped our residents with this craft activity, as they used a number of colours, fabrics and embellishments to produce a hat unique to each resident. Many of our residents wore them whilst having their Royal Ascot afternoon tea and we held a competition for the best designs.

We had some fantastic entries – it was easy to see how much effort had been put into each hat and the winners were very excited to receive their prize of a box of chocolates and a potted plant.
