Let there be light: Bath care home invites local community to honour D

On Thursday 6th June, from 7pm, Care UK’s Rush Hill Mews, on Clarks Way, is holding its very own lamp lighting ceremony to remember the hundreds of thousands of brave people who took part in the largest naval, air and land operation in history.

To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Normandy Landings on 6th June 1944, Care UK is partnering with royal pageant master Bruno Peek, CVO OBE OPR, coordinator of ‘D-Day 80 Lamp Light of Peace’. Along with the three Forces Charities and the Merchant Navy Association, over 100 Care UK homes will take part in this nationwide tribute.

Guests will be treated to live music from the D-Day Dollies, who will be singing popular wartime songs. The lamp, which represents the peace that followed the end of World War Two, will be lit in the evening by resident, Bill Knight, a Royal Navy veteran.

Caroline Carter, General Manager at Rush Hill Mews, said: “Here at Rush Hill Mews we’re always grateful for an opportunity to strengthen our relationships with our neighbours, so we’re looking forward to welcoming the community for a special event marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

“This is an incredibly important milestone for many residents, and we’re keen to honour all those involved. Music is a fantastic way to bring back memories for older people and a wonderful way to bring communities together, so we’re thrilled to welcome D-Day Dollies to get everyone’s toes tapping.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming new and old faces into Rush Hill Mews as we mark such a significant moment in history.”
