The residents of Castor Lodge Care Home in Castor were delighted to welcome members of the local community, families and The Mayor of Peterborough to celebrate the first year of opening for Castor Lodge Care Home. The care home hosted a sparkling James Bond themed party complete with casino, refreshments and stalls from local businesses.
In keeping with the theme, and marking 60 years of James Bond, the care home was transformed with Land Rover Defenders on the drive, a red-carpet entrance and bubbles upon arrival. Both guests and residents enjoyed testing their luck on a range of casino tables including Black-Jack and Roulette and indulged on canapes and martinis.
Laura Mills, Customer Relations Manager, commented on the day:
“Thank you to everyone who came along to help us celebrate such a special occasion. It was wonderful to share this day with our local community. It was lovely to see local businesses getting involved with our celebration and guests enjoyed browsing stalls from Korkor Yehoda, Cardyke Soay Sheep and Nene Valley Gin.”
The day was brought to a close with the cutting of the 007 themed cake created by Chef Manager Claudia Goode. The honour of which was given to Castor’s very first resident John Carr and Home Manager Natalie White. John was delighted to be asked and thanked the staff team for all their hard work in looking after him and the other residents.
One guest also commented “Well done to everyone that helped at the Birthday Bash – excellent do – everyone was having a good time and the helpers were brilliant.” – Chris Gilbert
