A care home in Bury St Edmunds has celebrated its ninth anniversary with some special guests.

The team at Care UK’s Mildenhall Lodge, on St John’s Close, pulled out all the stops for a special birthday celebration, nine years after it welcomed its very first residents.

In true festive spirit, the home was decorated with banners and balloons, and there was live music from popular local duo, Caprice, who sang a range of songs from 1960s classics to modern favourites – a great opportunity for everyone to show off their best moves on the dancefloor.

Guests were also treated to a delicious assortment of party food and glass of fizz, along with a specially made cake to mark the occasion.

Deepa Reju, Home Manager at Mildenhall Lodge, commented: “It was wonderful to see residents and relatives celebrating the special milestone.

“The whole team worked hard to organise the event, and I am delighted to say that their efforts were rewarded – our birthday party will be one to remember for years to come. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who makes Mildenhall Lodge an amazing place to call home, and for helping to make the day extra special.

“It’s been a wonderful nine years. We’ve welcomed some real characters to the home, built fantastic relationships with our neighbours and the wider community and made some long-lasting memories along the way. We’re excited to see what’s in store for the next nine years and beyond.”
