On Sunday we had a very special day at Blackwater Mill Residential Home. Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, Major General Martin White, visited us to present one of our residents, John Higgins with the Légion d’Honneur. This is the highest decoration one can receive in France. It was presented to Mr Higgins to thank him for the part he played in the D day landings, helping to free the European continent from the Nazis. At Blackwater we held a big party for him where the marine band came to play and local papers attended! All the other residents had a great time joining in and watching the show. Thank you to all who attended.
