Champagne corks popped at Kingswood Park, March, on Saturday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the care home's opening.
The day was also special for 99-year-old Wilf Howe, who has been a resident since it opened in 1966.
It was originally opened by the Isle of Ely County Council at a cost of £100,000 but was taken over by Hereward Housing and the Methodist Homes for the Aged. The home had been decorated by staff and residents and visitors were welcomed by manager Sumiyo Berkeley. Also there to celebrate the day were the two previous managers, George Barnes and Lynda Walker.
During the past 40 years Kingswood Park and the day care centre have provided care for hundreds of elderly people. A blessing and prayer was given by the Rev Pam Bayliss.
