The Daily Sparkle is ten years old!
It has been a decade since we first published an edition of The Daily Sparkle – 1st October 2009 – and in that time we’ve shared happy memories with thousands of residents and activity coordinators across the country.
Our first edition featured a quiz on Vera Lynn and stories about street parties, ‘The Sound Of Music’ and the ten bob note, as well as quizzes, songs and jokes. We finished that issue with the words: “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.”
You can read Issue No. 1 for yourself here.
It’s been an extraordinary decade which has seen our award-winning newspapers grow from just one daily paper to a weekly edition, a monthly resource magazine, handbooks, personalised Sparkles and training courses.
Thank you to all those who have supported our work and continue to bring happy memories, friendship and connections into their residents lives, through our newspapers.
