Tea at the Palace

Linda Simpson, Home Manager at Birchwood Grange Care Home in Harrow, was delighted to be invited to one of the summer’s prestigious Royal Garden Parties at Buckingham Palace on the 18th of May.

Linda was nominated to attend by Andrew Davis, Head of Adult Care Services in Brent, in recognition of her work through the pandemic. The sun was shining on the day of the party, with a brass band playing and guests dressed in their finest outfits, making for a colourful array of hats. The guests enjoyed an afternoon tea with a selection of sandwiches and cakes.

Also in attendance were the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex. Although Linda was not fortunate enough to be able to speak with either of the Royals, she stated: ‘’The atmosphere on the day was amazing. It was an honour to be able to attend and something I will never forget’’.

Congratulations, Linda, for your nomination!
