Earlier this month, Sherborne House received a visit from The Yeovilton Naval Servicemen on Remembrance Day. RNAS Yeovilton is one of the Navy’s two principal air bases, and one of the busiest military airfields in the UK.
It is home to more than 100 aircraft operated on both front-line squadrons and training units, including the Fleet Air Arm Wildcat Force and the Commando Helicopter Force, plus vintage aircraft of the RN Historic Flight.
Residents had taken the time to make poppies for the homes remembrance wall. Personnel took the time to spend a few hours meeting residents and joined in with staff to sing Happy Birthday to Olive who is celebrating her 100th Birthday this month.
Everyone observed the 2-minute silence as Big Ben struck 11 am followed by a prayer by one of our staff Paul, who is also a pastor. And of course, no celebration would be complete without a slice of chocolate cake!
