Luton care homes’ new tea room is a hit with the local community

Guests, staff and residents enjoying tea and cakes at the tea room launch

The launch of a new tea room at Little Bramingham Farm care home recently drew in the crowds. Over 70 people turned up to enjoy tea, cake and music.

Care home staff severed cream teas, delicious cakes, strawberries with cream and a selection of beverages. Additionally, Aimi P. wowed crowds with a set list of classics from Vera Lynn to hit songs from Mary Poppins.

Following the event, care home manager Emma Lawrance said it was great to see residents, their families, staff and members of the local community enjoying the new tea room together.

Emma said: “We couldn’t have asked for a better opening day. Especially as the sun was shining and there was a great atmosphere in the tea room.

“It was important for us to create a place that our residents could mix with local people who want to pop in for a slice of cake and a natter. So it was lovely to see such a friendly group of people enjoying the food and entertainment. Aimi P had many of our visitors singing along to much-loved songs.

“The very next day we welcomed some of our visitors back for a second time. You can’t ask for a better review than that!”

Going forward, the tea room will open every Monday and Wednesday between 10am and 2pm. But, if the demand is great enough, staff plan to increase the number of days the tea room is open.

Little Bramingham Farm residential care home is part of the charity Friends of the Elderly. The well-trained and compassionate team provides residential care and an active social calendar for residents. The new tea room is one of the many initiatives put on by the team to welcome the local community into the home.
