The Woodlands Care Home in Mirfield rolled out the red carpet, as it celebrated the achievements of residents and the care team with their very own special ceremony.
Fifteen awards were given across a variety of categories including ‘Best Singer’, ‘Best Writer’, ‘Long Service Award’ and the ‘WOW’ award.
Michelle Brooks, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a fantastic time celebrating these awards. It’s a fun way that we can give one another a pat on the back which is always greatly appreciated. Some of the acceptance speeches were absolutely hilarious. It was definitely a lovely way to spend an afternoon.”
Residents at the home also had the opportunity to celebrate their very own Yorkshire heritage.
Michelle Brooks, added: “We’ve taken pictures from books of our favourite beauty spots and displayed them around the home. Everyone enjoyed reminiscing about family holidays at the coast, building sandcastles, eating ice cream, fish and chips and paddling in the freezing water. The residents laughed at our Yorkshire man’s Prayer, ‘ere all, see all, say nowt’ and all other poems in the Yorkshire dialect.”
