Mayor of Ipswich attends Monmouth Court Care Home Easter Bakeoff


new_mayor_-_website_sizeThe Monmouth Court Care Home which is situated in Ipswich, celebrated Easter by organizing a Bake Off for the residents of the facility. But the real surprise at the event came in the form of the Mayor of Ipswich himself; Roger Fern who visited the care home and took part in the festivities.

The event was judged by a panel of four judges, as the members of staff baked indulgent cakes and treats in order to take home the accolades.

 “We had carrot cake, chocolate fudge cake, walnut and coffee, victoria sponge – we had all sorts,” said general manager Rebecca Watkins.

“The staff baked the cakes, everyone got involved. Our residents loved it, they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.”

Senior care professional Kay Fidgett was crowned the queen of the cakes with her Easter-themed chocolate cake decorated with little chicks and chocolate egg shells.

Easter was not the only reason to celebrate for the Monmouth Court Care Home though, as a recent CQC inspection report lifted the ban on the care home enlisting new residents with its rating moving up from ‘inadequate’ to ‘requires improvement’.

“We are absolutely thrilled” general manager Rebecca Watkins said reiterating the significance of the news.  

Let’s hope, more care homes take up the initiative to organize
