Sandridge care home celebrates birthday

RESIDENTS and staff at Tara’s Retreat were blessed with fantastic weather as they celebrated the residential home’s fifth birthday on Saturday.

Relatives and friends joined in the celebrations at the Sandridge home and enjoyed dancing to music from entertainer Jonathan Stevens. Pimms and canap�s were also served to guests in the lounge and gardens.

A celebratory bouquet of flowers was presented to Mabel Roe, the home’s first resident, who arrived at the home in 2006, in a vintage car driven by B&M Care’s chairman Mr Hughes.

Annette Sudbury Smith, manager at Tara’s Retreat, has said she is pleased with the links the home has made with the local community over the past five years and the success the home has enjoyed.

“Occupancy levels remain high and we receive most of our enquiries through recommendations and word of mouth,” she said.
