It celebrated with a ‘Top 20 Award’ cake, decorated by the home’s talented baker, Sarah Hill, and glasses of bubbly.

Home manager Zoe Randall said: “We are all delighted that Avocet House has been recognised for the Top 20 Award. We all feel this is a well-deserved tribute for a team who make sure that residents are at the heart of everything we do.

“It is amazing that the reviews from our residents and their friends and families have been instrumental in our receipt of the award. I am incredibly proud of Team Avocet.”
