The Green home manager Eluned Innes said: “It was such a great afternoon and wonderful to catch up with old friends. The residents have really enjoyed it too. Even the sun came out!”

The Mayor of Chesterfield, Councillor Maureen Davenport and The Mayoress of Chesterfield Liz Archer, also attended the party and spent time chatting to all the residents and staff.

Owner Deepak Jaiswal added: “I can’t believe The Green is 25 years old. I was 14 when my parents opened The Green, and I can remember helping out.

“The Green is a great place to live and work. Many of the staff here, have been with us for over 15 years, some of them much longer!”
