Milton Park 10 Year Anniversary Celebration

On Friday the 3rd of July we were celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Milton Park’s opening.

To celebrate this a brilliant party was held on Milton Park Campus for residents and staff from all over our residential and hospital services to come and enjoy. The event was brilliant fun and had fun fair stalls which were created by some of the residents, face painting, a brilliant bouncy castle and the ice cream man even turned up!

There was lots of food for everyone to enjoy and an art display where some residents had created their own Milton Park pieces. The local WI also had a stall providing a large selection of delicious cakes for dessert, that’s if there was any room left after all the other food!

The bouncy slide was of course in use all day, by staff and residents.   Maria and Victoria might have got a bit too excited! 

Then once everyone had eaten there was a presentation to all long serving staff by Michael McInerney (Brookdale Care’s Executive Chairman) and Mark Goldsborough (Chief Operating Officer). All staff members who have been with us for more than 10 years were presented with a personalised gift, vouchers, a card and a bottle of champagne.

33 staff members have been with us for this time, 20 from our Residential Care, 9 from Milton Park and 4 from head office. The fact we have so many long serving staff members from all different areas of the company is a brilliant testament to what it is like to work for Brookdale.

The 10 year celebration was brilliant, the weather was fantastic as was the entertainment and it was great seeing residents from all over the service meet up and have fun together. Also the long serving staff got the recognition they deserve for being loyal and hardworking. Thank you to everyone involved with helping planning, setting up and running the celebration (Especially to Becky and the rest of the Star Centre team!). We can’t wait to see what the next 10 years hold for Milton Park.
