Cheryl started work as a Care Assistant at Prince Alfred on the first day at opened on the 24th April 1991, and so it was a double-celebration for staff and residents.

Residents, staff, and loved ones, as well as guests from neighbouring care homes Willow Gardens, Arundel Park, Bishops Court and Simonsfield, kicked off celebrations with a champagne reception and afternoon tea. The party enjoyed an array of cake and petit fours, some of which were donated by the son of a Prince Alfred resident, who owns a bakery in Liverpool.

Residents and their guests also got into the dancing spirit, with ‘Havana Nights’ a ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ themed show from two local ballroom dancers.

The day was all topped off with the presentation of a plaque and a selection of goodies to Cheryl, to celebrate her 25 years of service at Prince Alfred.
