Couple Celebrates 50th Wedding Anniversary at London Home

A London home celebrated the 50th wedding anniversary of one of their residents with a party for the couple.

Janette Eden lives at MHA The Meadow and has been married to husband Douglas for 50 years.

Douglas visits his wife at the Muswell Hill home every day and celebrated the special day with residents and staff members.

The home is a residential and dementia care home with 40 rooms, 16 of which are designated for dementia specialist care.

To mark the occasion, there was a feast for everyone to enjoy along with live entertainment, which allowed residents to get involved and have a dance.

Speaking after the party Douglas said: “Janette and I both appreciated very much the lengths to which The Meadow went to help us celebrate appropriately our 50th Wedding Anniversary – which is a very special day for any loving couple who reach it.

“The party was very well-attended and jolly and admirably supported by the excellent staff and guest musician, and with their and our encouragement even residents who are normally very reserved joined in with a will.

“We also appreciated the celebration lunch with our godson and his wife, and the superb celebration cake baked on the premises.

“It was, as intended, a day to remember! Thank you all!”

Andrea Bruce, admin manager said: “Janette joined us here at MHA The Meadow in September 2021 and her husband Douglas visits her every day.

“We planned the day after speaking with Douglas and it was a pleasant day which got everyone involved.

“Even some of the residents who are usually quite quiet and reserved joined in and it was great to see.

“We are so happy we got to be a part of Douglas and Janette’s special day and had a great time.”
