Mayfield Celebrates in Style & Local School Pupil Sees Cake Design Become a Reality

Mayfield View Birthday Cake

Back in June we opened our doors to welcome the Ilkley community to a “Mad Hatter’s Tea Party”!  There were cakes and more cakes! And a special “design-a-cake” competition judged by Stray FM’s Nick Hancock was won by Sadie Eccles, 8, of Ben Ryhdding Primary School.

Sadie visited the home together with her family on Friday 4th October to see her cake which had been superbly translated from paper to reality by Emma McDonagh as the home prepared to celebrate in style with a party for residents, relatives, staff and members of the local community.

Sadie said, “Ever since I won the competition I have been looking forward to this, it’s so exciting to see the cake and the person who made it is so clever – it’s amazing!”

Home Manager Suzanne McPadden commented, “Today has been a real celebration, it was great to have Sadie and her family here and all our residents have been excited to attend our party on Friday in our own pub, The Mayfield Arms! Our residents living real lives with opportunities to do things they would have done before they lived in a care home is my real passion. I’m so grateful to have such a fantastic team of caring people here to help me to make that a reality.”
