Hammerwich Hall Celebrates Gwen’s 100th Birthday In Style

Birthday girl Gwen was showered with cards and presents as she celebrated turning 100th at Hammerwich Hall.

Colleagues helped Gwen get ready for a lovely lunch out at her daughter Linda’s house, where son Martin joined them for a family get-together.

While Gwen was dining out, the team at Hammerwich Hall got to work decorating her bedroom with the many cards she received, including one from a very special VIP.

Gwen was thrilled to receive her telegraph from Her Majesty The Queen, as well as well-wishes from her many loved ones.

Activities Co-ordinator Beverley Brown said that once Gwen returned to Hammerwich, she was led to the dining room where a special birthday cake was waiting for her.

Beverley said: “We took her on a detour and presented her with a beautiful birthday cake handmade by our chef, Kylie.

“The Residents and my Colleagues gathered around to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to her and presented her with a birthday balloon.

“Gwen said to me, ‘I can’t believe I’ve reached 100 years old!’ but it’s no surprise to us.

“She’s a strong, mobile and fiercely independent lady, and it’s inspiring to see her continue to thrive here at Hammerwich Hall.”
