To commemorate the day, the team at Abney Court hosted a birthday party complete with live music and fun games, for the residents and friends of the home.
Abney Court’s chefs prepared a delicious buffet and birthday cake for everyone to enjoy, and musical entertainment kept the party atmosphere going all afternoon.
Tracy Mitchell, home manager at Abney Court, said: “A lot of planning and preparation went into creating a fun day for residents, their families and the local community – and I’m delighted to say all the hard work was more than worthwhile! We all had a fantastic time and it was wonderful to see so many people from the local community celebrate the day with us.
“The last three years have been a whirlwind. We’ve welcomed some real characters to the home, built relationships with brilliant local organisations, and worked hard to create a real home-from-home environment for everyone who spends time with us here at Abney Court.
“On behalf of the whole team I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have been a part of our journey over the last few years and to everyone who celebrated our birthday with us. We’re excited to see what’s in store for the next three years and beyond!”
