The Mayor of the Borough of Harrogate, Councillor Nick Brown, and the Lady Mayoress were the guests of honour at the 50th anniversary celebrations for Hampden House Care Home in Harrogate on Thursday 28 July.
The Mayor and Mayoress joined 150 guests including local dignitaries, staff and residents at the champagne reception and afternoon tea to celebrate 50 years of exceptional care.
After the Mayor opened the event with a speech, the Lady Mayoress was presented with flowers by one of the residents.
Hampden House Care Home, located in the Duchy Estate of Harrogate, is one of nine award-winning care homes owned by the charity Turn2us and managed by Elizabeth Finn Homes Limited.
It was the first purpose-built care home to be built in Harrogate. The Home provides a total of 65 rooms, with areas for those who require personal care or help with daily life and others for those who need nursing care.
Karen Francis, General Manager of Hampden House Care Home said:
We were thrilled to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Harrogate and all our guests to our anniversary event. We are very proud that for fifty years, Hampden House has provided residents with the highest standards of care and support, warm surroundings and excellent facilities, and we were delighted to celebrate this milestone together.
