Hickathrift House Care Home in Marshland St James marked Armistice Day with wreath laying and silence





Hickathrift House Care Home in Marshland St James marked Armistice Day by laying a wreath and joining in with a two-minute silence along with members of the local community at the war memorial in Wisbech.

Residents also took part in therapeutic activities including poppy crafts with Debbie from Gratitude 43, art therapy poppy painting, Remembrance Day quizzes and activity sheets.

Paula Colman, general manager at Hickathrift, said: “We have many residents with personal ties to the military and many who have experienced conflict either at home or abroad so it was important to us to mark November 11 and honour the contribution of everyone involved in the World Wars and in subsequent conflicts. The residents always enjoy the Remembrance activities as well as paying their respects in the local community and laying a wreath.”
