Belong Morris Feinmann, has celebrated its second birthday in style, as party guests gathered together to toast the care village, which has become an integral part of Manchester’s Jewish community.
The sun shone down on the joyous occasion, which saw residents and members of the public treated to a Prosecco reception and an array of delicious treats, including a selection of cakes and strawberries and cream. The party was complete with live entertainment from renowned local double act, Brian and Maxine Warner, whose past audiences include the Royal family, and a heartfelt rendition of Sister Sledge’s ‘We are Family’ delivered by Belong staff, flash mob style.
Amongst the guest list was Didsbury West Councillors Richard Kilpatrick and Greg Stanton, Manchester City Councillor John Leech, and resident Barbara Jacques, who shared her 95th birthday celebrations with the village.
Belong Morris Feinmann’s experience coordinator, Angela Luckett, said: “The party was a huge success and it was truly wonderful to see everyone come together in celebration of all the village has achieved over the last couple of years, which includes the provision of class-leading dementia care to the local community.”
Belong Morris Feinmann is the sixth development from class-leading care operator, Belong, and was developed on behalf of the Feinmann Trust, which aims to support older people in the Jewish community.
The village comprises six households opening onto a private lounge, dining room and kosher kitchen. It also includes 13 one and two-bedroomed independent living apartments for rent or purchase, and a hub of facilities including a kosher bistro, synagogue, exercise studio and library.
