RESIDENTS, relatives and staff celebrated the first anniversary of a care home with a birthday party.

Wine tasting, pampering sessions, hair and make-up appointments, as well as massages and manicures were on offer at the party for residents of Harry Sotnick House, Buckland, to enjoy.

A singer and karaoke session entertained the crowd, and a balloon sculptor and face painter kept the children happy at the family event.

Gary Briggs, the home’s manager, said: ‘The party went really well.

‘There were lots of people there and everyone who came was really positive and seemed to enjoy it.

‘The residents had a great time which is the main thing.’

The event also celebrated national Dignity in Action Day which took place earlier this month to raise awareness of dementia.
