Courtland Lodge marks 20th anniversary with nautical summer celebration!!

29 June 2015

On Saturday our Watford care home celebrated its 20th birthday with Courtlands' Cruise - a spectacular, nautical themed summer celebration within the grounds of the Home.

Courtland Lodge was opened on 20th June 1995 by Quantum Care, in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council. The event’s guests included staff, residents, family and friends, and kicked off with a fantastic performance from entertainer Will Smith.

The team spent days transforming the home's garden for the ocean themed celebration, with a cruise ship themed marquee, a huge anchor painted across the patio, blue and white balloons, goldfish bowls and more!

With the sun shining on guests enjoyed an afternoon of fun and entertainment, but the highlight of the afternoon had to be the cutting of the birthday cake, which was made especially for the occasion, and which was cut by resident Emlyn Williams who has been at Courtland Lodge for 10 years, and Carer Ruth who has been part of the Courtland Lodge team since 1997!

Courtland Lodge’s Asvin Jhoollun said “we are delighted to be holding this celebration today to mark Courtland Lodge’s 20th birthday. My fantastic team have worked so hard to make this day a special one for our residents - we are all incredibly proud of our Home and all that we do, and are so pleased to have so many of our family and friends join us here today for this very special occasion.”
