Three residents received special recognition, Rose Avery, 109, Ivy Aylott, 106 and Nora England, who recently turned 100.
Josi George, manager at Mundy House, said: “We are one big family at Mundy House and it is a very special place to be. I wanted a create an event which would allow us to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our staff, but also recognise our residents and what outstanding people they are.”
15 long-serving members of staff were awarded, as well as ten residents’ families for their ongoing support to the care home.
Ms George said: “They never cease to amaze me, and their families have become an extension of our working family, while providing an incredible amount of support.
“I would like to continue this event and I would like to thank Deputy Mayor Cllr Danny Lawrence, who was here to celebrate the inaugural awards.”
