Lavender Hills care home residents take trip down memory lane on steam train ride

27 May 2019 – Bury Times

Care home residents from Lavender Hills enjoyed miles of stunning scenery journeying by train between Bury and Rawtenstall.

Memories from the Second World War and years gone by came back to those making the excursion as they passed through many areas they had played in as children.

They were joined of their travels by a ukelele player who got everyone singing along with tunes from the era, including Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile; Daisy Daisy and many more.

The singing did not stop as the residents enjoyed servings of sandwiches, cream scones and tea along the way.
