Scholars Mews Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Scholars Mews Care Home in Stratford-upon-Avon celebrated its 10th Anniversary in style on the 31st of May with an afternoon tea party for staff and residents. They enjoyed fresh homemade cakes and scones with cream and jam, followed by Prosecco, Pimm’s or orange juice.

A presentation was held for three long-serving staff members, including Team Leader Barbara Manktelow, who has worked at the home for over eight years. Barbara stated: ‘’I am very fond of the residents; they make my day, and that is why I have stayed all these years.’’

Karen Lynes, Team leader, has also worked for the home for over seven years. Karen said: ‘’I enjoy working alongside amazing people, and seeing the residents happy makes it all worthwhile.’’ Both Barbara and Karen received a basket of personalised gifts and flowers.

James Chamberlain, Maintenance Manager, has been with the home for over six years. James received a voucher for a meal out and stated: ‘’I have worked with some amazing people and cared for some amazing residents who make it all worthwhile when walking in the door every morning.’’

In the afternoon, staff and residents enjoyed entertainment from singer Jessica Jaques, who performed a great selection of songs from the 20s to the 60s. Residents and staff danced and sang along, and all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon – they were still talking about it several days later!
