Royal Ascot ladies day takes place on the 3rd day the gold Cup. Traditionally, women were given free or discounted tickets on ladies day which were otherwise only available to men.
Ladies day is known for its fashion competitions. There are awards for categories such as best dressed lady, couple and best hat.
At Broadmead Resthome, staff and residents were excited to celebrate by hosting a race game and hobby horse race.
The real bonus was the pleasure of having three ponies visit us from the local village who had been rescued and had found a safe forever home to live in.
The ladies had made fascinator hats in crafts leading up to the event and our gentleman admired our dashing ladies. The residents loved being up close to the horses and found it very therapeutic. Always working closely with the local community to keep the residents in our home connected as much as possible. We had so much fun and the residents who won the races were issued with rosettes which the residents also made in crafts.
It’s fantastic to have local communities involved in our home. No one loves this more than our residents. No one appreciates these visits more than our team as we see how much of a difference this makes to residents lives. If you know anyone who is able to visit Broadmead Resthome (we are on the West Berkshire and Hampshire border) and bring any part of the community to our residents, please feel free to contact us using the Contact Form above. We an offer free tea and biscuits and a warm, friendly, homely environment.
