Our North Inch and North Grove residents were delighted to be part of some very important Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Their neighbour Black Watch Castle and Museum, a favourite visiting spot for residents, came up with the idea of a path of decorated pebbles. Residents got busy painting pebbles for the Platinum Path, which was then laid in the grounds of the Castle. Staff and visitors to the Perth museum also contributed to the Path, which will be a long-lasting memorial of the Queen’s 70th year as Monarch.

To make the occasion even more fun, our valued charity partners Cycling Without Age transported residents back and forth from the Museum by trishaw. Cycling Without Age are regulars at our two Perth care homes, taking residents around the nearby park on trips.

Diane Cain, Home Manager at North Inch and North Grove, said: “What a perfect way for our residents to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. The pebble painting provided a brilliant and meaningful activity for them, and it was so special that their work became part of something permanent in the Platinum Path. Thanks to our partners at the Black Watch Castle and Museum for the chance to be part of this, and our friends at Cycling Without Age who made sure residents travelled in style back and forth.”
