Residents at Hartismere Place, were joined by friends, family, and the local community to commemorate the care home’s first 12 months of providing expert care to older people in Eye.   

Visitors to the care home enjoyed a Mad Hatter’s Tea party, which included a special cake made by the head chef at Hartismere Place, Fiona Suckling while live music from local singer, Deano helped get everyone in the party spirit.

Residents were also joined by a special guest, Suffolk County Councillor for Hoxne and Eye, Councillor Guy McGregor, who unveiled the commemorative plaque with regional director, Phillip Steyn, and residents Vera Theobald and Yvonne Love. 

Cathryn Weed, home manager at Hartismere Place, said: “After an exciting and busy 12 months, we were all incredibly thrilled to mark our first birthday. Our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was a wonderful opportunity for residents to celebrate the warm, friendly community we have created here at Hartismere Place. 

“The last year has really flown by and we want to say a big thank you to the local community, residents, and their family and friends, as well as the brilliant care team which provides the best possible care all year round.”
