A Croxley cafe recently contributed 300 cream teas for a virtual Valentine’s Day event which brought the whole Watford community together.
The Kitchen Croxley provided the cream teas for the event for care home residents hosted by Watford FC CSE Trust and Watford Borough Council on Sunday, February 14 filed with music and special guests.
Linda Anderson, owner of The Kitchen said they were delighted to take part and it was nice to be part of the community effort.
She said: “I don’t think we released at the time when we took the order that we were part of something a lot bigger.
“It makes you aware of just how much really lovely stuff is going on despite the pandemic, it’s bringing the best out of people.”
Linda added that it was lovely to take part in the Zoom event and see how much the care home residents enjoyed the event with special guests Vibe 107.6 DJ Lee Partridge and Watford FC’S Luther Blissett.
She said: “The care home staff were just fantastic, you had people joining dancing with the residents, swaying with them it was just fantastic to see
“It feels like there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
Peter Taylor, Elected Mayor of Watford said: “Events like these are really important because they ensure people with dementia or those who are isolated have the opportunity to socialise, connect with their community and have fun.
“Making the town better for elderly residents and people living with dementia is important because we want to be a town where everyone can thrive and live fulfilling lives. I’d like to thank everyone who got involved to help make this happen.”
