The Museum in the Park is providing artifacts from the 1950s and guests will also be treated to a celebratory cake plus delicious party food.

Home manager Lyndsey Dixon said: “We’re thrilled to be inviting the community to join us in celebrating our ninth birthday.

“It’s been a wonderful nine years and we’ve created some incredible memories together with the residents here at Scarlet House.

"We’ve welcomed some real characters into the home, built long-lasting relationships with our neighbours and hosted plenty of exciting events – including welcoming almost 30 dachshunds into the home’s garden earlier this year!

“We can’t wait to see everyone come together to enjoy the celebrations and listen to residents share their favourite moments of life at Scarlet House!”
