BIRTHDAY BASH FOR 90-YEAR-OLD WILTSHIRE CARE HOME RESIDENT

BIRTHDAY BASH FOR 90-YEAR-OLD WILTSHIRE CARE HOME RESIDENT

At HC-One’s The Westbury residential and nursing care home, one very special person celebrated his 90th birthday today among family and fellow residents.

Colleagues decorated the lounge and all the residents joined to celebrate, play games and sing. Then the birthday man, Gordon Holmes, who was turning 90, went into the garden to join his family (pictured) where he had champagne and a delicious buffet with them.

Gordon was married and had two daughters and a son. He worked as an accountant for Cow & Gate dairy which was taken over by United Dairies. He also worked for another firm in Bath after that in accountancy.

Fellow residents, and Gordon, enjoyed wine, Baileys, sherry, tea, coffee and a lovely buffet. Everyone enjoyed the singing too.

Gordon said: “Thank you for the effort everyone put into making my birthday special.”

Jacqui Evans, Activities Coordinator, commented, “Gordon is a very quiet and lovely gentleman, who didn't want any fuss but enjoyed the time he spent on his birthday. It was lovely to see him in the garden with his family. It really was a beautiful day and the sun was shining which lifted everyone’s spirits as well.”
