Care Home Turns 10 With A Rockabilly Dance Party

TurnsThe Mayor of New Milton joined a unique care home dance group in celebrating a birthday ‘with a twist’.

Colten Care’s Kingfishers in The Meadows, staged a Rockabilly Dance Party to mark its 10th anniversary.

The Outstanding rated care home welcomed Mayor David Rice-Mundy, staff past and present and a host of residents and their friends for birthday cake, Pimms and an energetic rendition of The Twist led by the home’s own dance group the Glitter Ball Champions.

Home Manager Beata Brzozowska was joined by Colten Care Operations Manager Linda Brownlie and the Mayor to cut the beautiful cake.

Afterwards Beata said: “This party – the fun, laughter and real sense of camaraderie amongst the team and our residents – perfectly sums up the spirit of Kingfishers and shows why the home has grown to become such a success in the last 10 years.

“I would like to say a special thank you to all the staff for their continuing hard work and commitment to making Kingfishers such a lovely place in which to live.”

Alongside the energetic entertainment residents and their visitors also enjoyed a tasty barbeque.

Resident Terry Vass said: “I knew the staff were organising a party but I didn’t know it was going to be this good!”

Rose Arcellana, Companionship Team Leader at the home added: “We love music here at Kingfishers and many of us love to dance too.

“Indeed, our own dance group. which is made up of staff and residents, won the Glitter Ball Champion title at Colten Care’s inter-home Strictly Come Tea-Dancing event last year. So it was only right they would lead everyone in The Twist.”
