The Mayor of Blandford was guest of honour as Whitecliffe House celebrated its 25th anniversary.
Councillor Jackie Stayt joined residents and families at the home, which was decorated in a silver and purple theme. They enjoyed a champagne reception, specially prepared silver anniversary lunch, followed by a song and dance show from professional touring group Memory Lane Productions.
The show had the theme of an interactive street party, with lots of opportunities for audience participation.
Colten Companion Val Weaving, the home’s longest serving employee who joined 25 years ago as a Healthcare Assistant, was another guest of honour and cut the anniversary cake.
Regular visitor Linda Brown, whose mother Stella lived at Whitecliffe House for many years, entertained residents and visitors with songs that had the word ‘silver’ in the title or lyrics.
Home Manager Anne Tapley said: “We all thoroughly enjoyed the day. It was a really lovely occasion and a great way to mark 25 years of serving our community. It was also a chance to introduce our newly-appointed Clinical Lead, Amy Morton, to residents’ families.”
