Care home residents host Tea in the Parklands festival

1 June 2021

A care home in Tain has held its second music festival during the pandemic.

While many major festivals have been cancelled or postponed, the show most certainly went on at Innis Mhor care home where residents and staff revelled at the now annual Tea in the Parklands festival.

Residents - including 100 year old Isma Munro - enjoyed access to a cocktail bar, BBQ, stalls and even a tattoo parlour, while local duo Carol and June performed some classic songs and staff sang along to Tom Jones hits.

Jackie Macrae, manager at Innis Mhor said: “After a long and difficult winter, it was great to let our hair down, get out into the fresh air and have some fun again. The residents had a ball and the weather was very good to us. It was a great way to round off a week of celebrations with Isma having turned 100 just a few days earlier.”

Innis Mhor - part of the Parklands Care Homes group - has been shortlisted at this year’s national Care Home Awards for the ‘Best for Sporting, Social or Leisure Activities' award. Parklands itself has been shortlisted for a further three awards including Best Smaller Care Home Group (<25 homes).
