A care home in Alford held an 80's themed celebration in honour of its founder's 30th anniversary.

Residents, relatives, guests and the team at Tanglewood's Sandpiper Care Home dusted off their leg warmers, ruffle skirts and chunky jewellery; put on neon make-up, crimped their hair, and enjoyed a fantastic party in honour of the company's milestone.
Guests enjoyed a lively afternoon that included a hog roast and buffet, a stunning anniversary cake baked and decorated by Head Chef Candy Dean, and took a trip down memory lane at the afternoons disco with DeamBelles, who belted out hits of the decade.
Founder and Director Tracy Shelbourn and Operations Director Nike Ajewole were on hand to present Tanglewood Commemorative Coins for long service.
