Rendlesham Care Centre in Rendlesham, held a very special afternoon tea party for one of their residents this month. Una, who has been a resident at Rendlesham Care Centre since April 2019 celebrated her 101st Birthday at the home.
Una was born in 1920 in Bury St. Edmunds and was an only child. She spent a lot of time with her parents which she says she was very lucky to be able to do. When Una was asked what was the key to a long, healthy and happy life she said, ‘Do what you can to help people, and enjoy all the moments you have with your parents’.
Una has lived in Suffolk for most of her life and during her career as a school teacher she worked at Framlingham Grammar school teaching Sewing and Cookery.
As certain restrictions have been lifted and testing available at Rendlesham Care Centre it meant that Una was allowed to celebrate her milestone birthday surrounded by family and friends. Although her husband sadly passed away, and they never had children, Una had lots of cousins she was very close to, and is still in contact with some of them.
Una entered into the lounge to a rapture of applause from family, residents and the care team. We were then entertained by David Ceasar who played his piano and sang an array of songs.
Our talented in-house cake maker, Julie, made the most wonderful cake which was topped off with personalised bespoke cake decorations.
Following the party, Una’s family sent a lovely message to Rendlesham, ‘Thank you for the time and trouble you went to making Una’s day special. It was much appreciated. Una also said she had a wonderful afternoon and said she felt very spoilt.'
Once again, Una, Caring Homes and Rendlesham Care Centre would like to congratulate you, and wish you the happiest of 101st
