Updated 4:40pm Monday 30th June 2014 in News
A SOUTH Lakeland care home has celebrated its 100th birthday by turning the clock back to Edwardian times for a special party.
Staff at Cartmel Grange in Grange-over-Sands donned period costumes to reflect the era the home’s foundation stone was laid.
An 'opening' celebration was conducted by Grange Mayor Tricia Thomas and Queen’s Guide to the Sands Cedric Robinson who unveiled a commemorative plaque to mark the event.
Westmorland and Lonsdale MP Tim Farron and his family also joined in the celebrations and entertainment included Furness Clog Dancers, music by Jeremy Jay and the Old Contemptible’s Brass Band. The entertainment was concluded by local dance group Dance Atikk.
Local trade stalls were set up and the money raised on the day - around £1,100 - will be presented to Bay Search and Rescue, whose members brought along their Hagglunds rescue vehicle for all to see.
