MHA Kenbrook rolls back years by hosting 1940’s themed party to mark MHA's 80th birthday

10 November 2023

MHA Kenbrook went back in time to 1943 and celebrated the 80th birthday of MHA.

The Wembley home arranged a 1940’s theme to mark the 80th birthday of Methodist Homes (MHA).

The home was decked in posters with movie posters that were popular in that time as well as comparing prices of everyday items between now and then.

One of the lounges on the ground floor was the venue for the party which was enjoyed by staff, residents and family members.

There was also some live entertainment with hits from the 40’s and 50’s featuring heavily.

Farah Hussain, activity coordinator said: “We had a great time celebrating the 80th birthday of MHA.

“It's a very proud occasion and makes us all very privileged to work for an organisation with so much history  

“The kitchen staff prepared a special cake, which was cut by Sarah Law our home manager.

“The residents helped to set the party up and it was nice to see them take a great interest.

“The posters showing the price differences for everyday items were very interesting and a lot of our residents remembered when the items did cost a lot less.

“They really enjoyed the entertainment as the music was something that they  would have grown up listening too

“One of the relatives of a resident set up a balloon decoration which took her three hours and was amazing.

“We got a lot of positive feedback from the relatives and overall it was a great day enjoyed by all.”
