Longley Park View host vintage motorcycle event

On Sunday 3 June, Sheffield care home Longley Park View held a vintage motorcycle event with Triumph Motorcycle Association.

A number of vintage motorcycles were on display at the specialist care home, for the public to view and talk to the bike owners.

Friends of service users and families were in attendance, as well as a number of individuals from the local community including local Police Community Support Officers!

One officer said: “I’ve never seen anything like this before at a care home in the area, it is a great way to get everyone interacting and enjoying a spectacular afternoon in the sun. Thanks for the cuppa and cake! We really like this home!”

The beautifully sunny Sunday afternoon provided the opportunity for all those in attendance to not only enjoy the buzz of the vintage bikes, but also the chance to view the newly refurbished care home and enjoy sweet treats in Longley Park View’s very own café!

Service users were thrilled with the turnout at their home, and revelled in playing host to their guests. Coffees, cakes and other treats were provided to all in Longley Park Café, with all money raised going towards the service user fund.

As the afternoon continued, local singer and guitarist Julie Jackson arrived to perform in the café. Visitors sang along, and even threw in a few requests whilst dancing along. Even the team from Triumph were jiving with our service users!

As visitors continued to arrive, Longley Park Café opened its doors into the courtyard, for people to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. Local Exemplar care homes Willowbeck and Lonnen Grove even paid a visit to their fellow service users for the afternoon and had a thoroughly marvellous time.
