The care home in Aylesbury is managed by the Fremantle Trust, which merged with St John’s Care Trust in February 2024.

Fremantle Court Care Home manager Claire Watson and her team will give the mayor and other guests a tour of the site. As well as fun activities guests will enjoy lunch with staff and residents, and a slice of a special anniversary cake.

respected by all. The residents love trying it on. My whole team take great pride in caring for our residents who’s care needs can be simple through to nursing and dementia. We look forward to serving the community for decades to come.”

Among those attending the party was Alan Bann, who moved to Fremantle in 2014, he said: “I moved to Fremantle Court in April 2014 and remember

being one of the first residents. Prior to moving to the home, I lived in a care home, near Milton Keynes for several years. My reason for moving to Fremantle Court was to live nearer my sister. I was diagnosed with MS in my late 20’s but was able to work for several years until my health condition progressed.

“Fremantle Court is a lovely home, and the staff are really caring. I feel comfortable and happy. The home has enabled me to keep my independence as I like to go out on my own in my electric wheelchair.”
