Bridgemead rebranded!

Bridgemead’s new branding is revealed today. We needed to refresh our image after 25 years and want our new logo to reflect, in a modern way, some of the best things about Bridgemead. We asked our staff and others to say what Bridgemead means to them.  Main themes were:
    • Caring
    • Family
    • Community
    • Homely
    • Inclusive
    • River setting
    • Environment (trees,wild life, etc)
    • Location near Cleveland Bridge
    • Good food.

A logo was designed by Mytton Williams based on this research and incorporating the reliefs on Cleveland Bridge.

The symbol from the bridge is shown in two colours: the bridge and its reflection in the river. The colour for the bridge was selected to represent the environment (trees, foliage, etc). The whole image symbolises a community setting, people gathered together in a circle, eating together or enjoying friendship, all of which which we feel are at the heart of Bridgemead.

Bridgemead feasts

The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Rob Appleyard, said on a recent visit:” Bridgemead is brilliant. There is a sense of grace and love here, and the food is amazing!” Elliot Gower is part of the great team in the kitchens at Bridgemead producing the amazing food. He has worked here for 12 years, with the chefs Mark and Maria.

He says: “They are a good bunch of people and we have a laugh. Everyone has five minutes to spare chatting to the residents. It can be stressful but everyone goes out of their way to help each other. Everything is cooked from scratch and it is all fresh, except for the cod in batter.”

“The most popular dish is a roast dinner – pork, lamb, chicken or beef. On their birthdays residents choose their favourite menus – and it is always a roast dinner or salmon.”

“Everyone loves the puddings: Eton mess, cherry pie, fresh fruit cocktail, chocolate sponge, banana custard and baked apple are favourites – there’s hardly ever anything left.”

“We cater for everyone, whether it’s yeast free, dairy free or fat free; or we puree some foods for those who can’t swallow easily.”

“All in all, it’s a homely, friendly environment.”
