A right royal celebration
Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee at our almshouses with festivities and friendship.
Residents, community partners, trustees and local councillors and the Hammersmith community came together to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at our almshouses in May. With two garden parties held at John Betts House and Sycamore House, we celebrated in style with live music from local groups, food, drink, conversation – and a few tricks from a local magician.
“We were delighted to see so many local people celebrating the Jubilee at our sheltered housing schemes,” said Victoria Hill, CEO. “It was great to see so many familiar faces and some new ones. We believe Hammersmith’s best asset is its local community. So many people worked so hard to support others over the pandemic and we hope our small celebration helped acknowledge some of them.”
“Early start for #jubilee2022 with John Betts and Sycamore House in good spirits and voice. Thanks to @HamUnited for asking me, Mayor @EmmaApthorp and Dep Leader @BJ_Coleman for jubilee tea.” Andy Slaughter MP
“Great time at John Betts celebrating together. Huge thanks to our residents and staff for putting on a lovely party. What a pleasure to meet the new mayor @EmmaApthorp @lbhf. Excellent work by @hammersmithandy and @BJ_Coleman, Dep Leader of LBHF, helping us eat all those cakes.” Vivienne Lukey, Hammersmith United Charities Chair.
“Thank you @HamUnited for inviting me to your #PlatinumJubilee Party. A lovely event. Highlights meeting a 91 year old resident who loves living with you, the beautiful gardens and the fruit juice, which was most definitely punch.” Barons Court Project
