Nine decades of life is worthy of celebration!
To live to see 90 years old is a special achievement so we organized a party for our 90 plus tenants.
Our Communal Services team came up with this fantastic idea during a team meeting. Everyone agreed that holding an event for our four 90 years plus tenants, their ages range from 92 to 95, would be a great way to honoured them.
Hosted at Bougainvillea Gardens, one of our sheltered Schemes, family and friends were invited to join us for music, food and a chat about the old days.
Joan Ridgeway (92 years) said “I’ve had a few good Christmases over the years, both my husband and me had some good times at Bolton Palais, especially on Christmas Eve.”
Gwendolyn Halliday (95 years) said “Thank you all very much. I’ve had a lovely time and really, really enjoyed myself.”
Also celebrating were Majorie Millichip ( 90 years) and Hilda Brierley (94 years).
All four ladies were presented with a bunch of flowers from their fellow tenants and a beautiful poem written by an old friend.
Arawak Walton want to say big congratulations to all our older residents and we hope our homes play a large part in making past, present and future years happy.
Poem by Rickford Handy
If you are ninety or ninety plus
You probably had a good life
So for you we can all make a fuss
So let us all raise our glasses and shout
Wonderful Wonderful you
Through all those good and bad years
You are still here like true blue
So we say to you God bless you Dears
