A Sanctuary Care home in the heart of Chester has celebrated its first anniversary with live music and an afternoon of ‘glitz and glam’.
The team and residents enjoyed a slice of the celebrations at Upton Dene Residential and Nursing Home in Caldecott Close, where the home rejoiced a year since it officially opened in 2016.
Lord Mayor of Chester Councillor Angela Claydon joined residents and the team as they looked back over the past year at their ‘glitz and glam’ themed celebrations.
“…Upton Dene is a great place to be!”
83-year-old resident Norma Long said: “I really loved the party, it was nice to have a dance for such a special occasion.”
Fellow resident Gill Hunt, 80, agreed: “I loved dancing with everyone – I have made lots of good friends since living here and enjoyed many activities, it’s a great reason to celebrate.”
Jean Capner, 88, added: “The party was fabulous – Upton Dene is a great place to be!”
Champagne reception and live music
There was a champagne reception, mouth-watering birthday cake and live music from Guy Stewart, who performed classic Michael Bublé hits.
The Sanctuary Care home’s activities leader Bernie Harding said: “We have only been open for a year but in that short time we have not only created a home for the incredible people who live here, but we truly feel part of our wonderful community – thank you for the local people of Upton who have made us feel so welcome.”
