Music and Memories at PMKC

Prince Michael of Kent Court (PMKC), the RMBI care home in Watford, has been presented with a fantastic Wurlitzer jukebox.

The jukebox, which plays CDs, has taken pride of place next to the bar in the main lounge.

It all began with an idea from home manager, Beverley Roberts.

Music is very important to the happiness and wellbeing of the elderly and Beverley thought that having a traditional jukebox would bring wonderful memories and music to the residents of PMKC.

The Association of Friends of PMKC took on the challenge and within a few weeks, Association chairman, Julien Sampson, had sourced the perfect jukebox.

Funding was achieved with donations from Maida Vale Chapter, No. 2743 and Doric Lodge, No. 11 (HFAF).

The stunning item was delivered on Monday 23rd May and set up by Association of Friends members Doug and Roz Brodie.

They are now appealing for donations of CD’s of 1950’s and 1960’s music which can be added to the jukebox selection of music.

Doug Brodie said “The Wurlitzer can hold 50 CD’s, and we have managed to find 10 with music from the 50’s and 60’s.

We’d love to get some Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis, etc., which are very popular with our residents, as well as other music of that era.”

CD’s can be sent, or handed in to Prince Michael of Kent Court, Stratford Road, Watford WD17 4DH.
