A CELEBRATION open day with a difference marked the 65th anniversary of a Bognor Regis care home.

The event at Greenways, in Hawthorn Road, saw residents, visitors and even Bognor Regis Town mayor Paul 
Wells all get into the party spirit last Saturday.

Manager Rhona Lee said: “We held the fete to celebrate our 65th anniversary and I am really pleased with how it all went.

“Everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves.

“It was really busy and we had between 
80 and 90 visitors to help us mark the occasion as well as 40 residents.

“We had the mayor and one of our board members as well.”

The festivities were opened by town mayor Paul Wells, who even took a turn around the dance floor with some of the residents.

This was followed 
by a 1940s-themed 
tea and party with 
live music.

Stalls selling cakes made by the residents, crafts and books also proved a big hit.

The home raised £537 during the day.

“The money will be used to go towards buying Christmas presents for all the residents as well as some festive treats,” said Rhona.

Greenways is in the Methodist Housing Association 
network of care homes across the country for elderly and disabled people.
