CARE home residents in Salisbury are getting in the jubilee spirit to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne with a special exhibition.

Milford House Care Home is holding an art exhibition at Waterstones in Salisbury from Sunday, June 5 until Sunday, July 3.

The exhibition was inspired by HM The Queen and celebrates her 70 years on the throne with a series of seven themed works - one for each decade - that each reflect an aspect of her reign as chosen by the residents.

Marie-Therese Tiernan, the general manager at Milford House Care Home, said: “. The art exhibition is going to be a very special event for us and we are excited to be able to display beautiful artwork created by our residents that honour our amazing Queen, and for people from the community to be able to view these unique pieces.

Salisbury Journal:

“Art is very popular with everyone who lives at Milford House and creative activities are always a favourite and it has been wonderful to see so many residents contribute in a variety of ways to creating these works.

“Please do take time to stop by and see the exhibition if you are in Salisbury.”

One resident added: “I particularly enjoyed working on the piece based on stamps and I think it has turned our really well, and I am looking forward to see all the pieces displayed together.”

Milford House care home is run by Barchester Healthcare.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee-inspired exhibition will be available to view during the shop’s normal opening hours.
