HATS off to elderly residents at a care home in Worcester who have been busy creating their own patriotic headwear to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The flags will be flying high at Cranham Care Home in Warndon as residents and staff enjoy a Royal tea party on Tuesday (June 5) afternoon.

They have been getting into the swing of things this week by making their own hats and table decorations, and the Sanctuary Care-run home will be covered in bunting ahead of a good old fashioned knees up.

A Royal feast of salmon and cucumber sandwiches and Jubilee themed cupcakes will be served up on the home's finest china.

Manager Cindy Hawkins said: “Our residents are very patriotic and the Queen has a very special place in their hearts, with many of them fondly remembering the day Her Majesty came to the throne.

“We are very creative here so thought what better way to get everybody in the mood for a good old-fashioned knees up than by making our own hats and decorations. I am sure The Queen would be very proud of the effort our residents have gone to!”
