Residents at Hartley Place, Magenta Living’s state-of-the-art, independent living community in Ellesmere Port, were treated to a night of country music and Wild West-themed fun to mark the facility’s 1st anniversary.
The lounge of the extra care housing scheme, which supports independent living for the over 55s and provides residents with their own self-contained home in a communal development, proved the perfect setting for a live set from professional country music act Tennessee Jack who performed in full, authentic Western gear.
Residents were also invited to mosey on down to Hartley Place’s own Lemon Tree Bistro to enjoy a hot pot supper and a slice of birthday cake. The evening wrapped up with a ‘Hartley Place’ themed quiz.
The anniversary celebrations, which came a year after Hartley Place first opened its doors to residents, formed part of a regular programme of activities and entertainment held at the extra care community.
The independent living scheme, comprising 60 apartments as well as 15 bungalows, also offers an on-site hairdressers and beauty salon, which are open to the public, along with a landscaped garden space where residents can enjoy planting and gardening. Residents can also benefit from 24-hour on-site support services and a range of flexible care packages.
Commenting on the 1st birthday event, Justin Danher, Head of Specialist Housing Services from Magenta Living said, “Hartley Place is a vibrant, social and inclusive community and we wanted to celebrate this with all of our residents and staff. We had a fantastic evening and our residents really got into the spirit of things. We look forward to sharing more occasions like this together as part of our ongoing community events programme.”
