A residential home for people with dementia celebrated its 50th anniversary as a family-run care home last weekend.

Margaret House, in Church End, Royston, had double cause for celebration, as the milestone coincided with the home being voted one of the top 20 care homes in the East of England for 2021.

Although the celebrations had to be more low-key than originally planned , staff and residents were still able to enjoy the afternoon, celebrating with a special cake, fizz and in-house entertainment.

Staff were also given a celebratory '50th' bottle of fizz to take home from owners Thomas and Gail.

Thomas said: "I can't believe that it has been 50 years since my parents first opened Margaret House.
