Message from Nicola
On 22nd February, our wonderful resident, Mrs Ira Webber, celebrated her 101st Birthday! It was a pleasure to be able to celebrate with her. Thank you to Ira’s family for providing a cake for all our residents to enjoy and also thank you to our Donna for making one also.
Secondly, we welcomed Mrs Joyce Jobson to Nettlestead in February, who has settled in nicely. Joyce is a leap year baby and celebrated her birthday with us and her family!
March will see three more of our residents celebrate their birthdays.
