This Sunday marked a very special occasion here at the Manor House as the family of one of our residents, Ian, were able to join him for a Birthday Party here in The Hub.

It’s no secret that the last 17 months have been tough on everyone due to limitations on visiting due to Covid-19.  To be able to see families together like this at The Manor House made this an extra special day – I think it’s safe to say there was a lot of emotion from both the family and the staff.

Thank you to Ian’s family for reaching out to us to allow us to make the necessary arrangements for you to be able to hold this party in The Hub.  We understand families want to be together and to see Ian, surrounded by family, back with his wife Joyce who was a former resident at the Manor House but has recently been able to move home was truly joyous.

Ian’s daughters said

“We just wanted to thank everyone involved in organising our birthday party for Dad yesterday. We all had a really lovely time, and the high tea was amazing!

Dad really enjoyed his party and clapped along when we all sang Happy Birthday to him.  We also made a playlist of a lot of his favourite songs, and he loved that.  Mum also got emotional when she saw so many of us there.

It was a great afternoon, thank you all so much”

Feedback like this means everything to us.  We will always do everything we can to accommodate your requests and if we can support a family reunion like this, we most certainly will!
