Radford Care Home celebrates 50th anniversary in style

A NOTTINGHAM-based care home has raised a glass in celebration of its 50th anniversary at two fun-filled parties last week (16 and 17 May). 

Around 80 people who regularly attend Radford Care Group joined together to enjoy a home cooked lunch, bingo calling and a disco to celebrate the milestone.

Radford Care Group initially operated out of Radford Primary School, which the team moved into in 1968. Courtesy of Radford YMCA, the team was able to use its canteen to cater for lunches for older people in the area. After demand for its services grew, in 1979 the team moved into its new home on Prospect Street, where it has been based ever since.

CEO of Radford Care Group, Jill Davies said:

“It is great that we are here to celebrate the Care Group’s 50th anniversary. Everyone has put a terrific amount of effort in to be where we are today and it is important that we celebrate that fact.”

In the Care Group’s half century year, work is also expected to start on a £1.3m development to provide more modern facilities for its attendees as well as to expand the offering and allow more people to visit.

Jill added:

“This is a huge year for us as an organisation. Not only are we celebrating the half century mark but we are also looking forward to starting our new development. This will be a huge step for us and we will be able to care for more people in the community which is greatly needed.”

The project is being delivered by a number of local partners, including architects CPMG and global property consultancy Gleeds.

Radford Care Group is one of the leading care groups in Nottingham for the older people, based on Prospect Street in Radford.
