Decorations adorned the Golden Oak Pub, transforming the space with a sea of red and white. The iconic St George’s Cross fluttered while residents settled into the comfortably place seating, anticipation in the air. There was a themed buffet spread, featuring a gala pie, pickles, crisps, cheese and pineapple sticks and even some olives as a nod to the opposing team.
Karen Robinson, the Lifestyle Coordinator at Roden Hall, said:
“As the final whistle blew, it may not have been the outcome that was hoped for but there was a huge sense of pride for the Lionesses and their achievement. It showcased not only our passion for football but a sense of unity at Roden Hall. We revelled in the company of one another and made memories that we will treasure long into the future.”
