Lancashire Based Care Home Celebrates 65-year Anniversary With Full Week Extravaganza

A Lancashire based care home celebrated its 65-year anniversary with a week full of activities and celebrations.

MHA Starr Hills opened its doors for the first time in 1957 and provides residential care and support for up to 36 people.

To mark the occasion the staff at the home organised a week’s worth of activities including live entertainment and afternoon tea.

Guests included family members of current residents as well as those who have lived at the home in previous years.

There was a thanksgiving service to remember every one of those who have lived and worked at the home in the past.

Camille Cutler, activity coordinator said: “There was a lot of planning that went into the week, and we made sure our residents were consulted before we did anything.

“We had to postpone the original dates due to the death of The Queen and the celebrations came at the right time.

“The celebrations gave residents and staff members a chance to have fun, especially with the last couple of years and it was a great week

“Throughout the home there was a festival-like atmosphere and we have already had some residents ask us to do it again.

“Everyone had a great time, the response we got from family members and residents was very positive and that made it all worthwhile.

“We are very proud of the history here at MHA Starr Hills and look forward to our next landmark celebrations.”
