STAFF and residents of Breme Care Home in Bromsgrove will be getting ready to celebrate St Patrick's Day today (Monday).
The home will be decorated with shamrocks, leprechauns and there will be folk music from Bob Bignell and The Three Fivers, along with entertainment from a troupe of Appalachian dancers. ‘Step on Board’ will be performing a traditional folk dance wearing clogs and full costume and dancing on their own special wooden platform.
Residents will also be enjoying traditional Irish stew with colcannon, along with whisky fruit cake for afters.
The home’s activities leader Helen Barron, who moved to England from Kilkenny in Southern Ireland in 1988, said: "The residents at Breme share my enthusiasm for St Patrick’s Day and absolutely love getting into the spirit of the occasion – and I am sure this year will be no exception.
“It is wonderful to share stories with them about my Irish roots and they are really looking forward to having a good party.”
