There were plenty of reasons to celebrate at a Knutsford based home following the 100th birthday of one of the residents.
Alan Wilson celebrated the landmark with his son Paul and daughter in law as well as his wife, Margaret who recently moved into the home.
To mark the occasion the home, which provides general nursing and nursing dementia care for 61 residents organised a surprise party for Alan and his family.
He received plenty of gifts, with champagne, balloons and a birthday cake to complete the party as well as a telegram from the King.
Lynne Morrilly, activity coordinator said:
“Alan had a really nice day celebrating his birthday and had a huge smile on his face throughout the day.
“Having Margaret move into the home has been great for him, especially as they have been married for 64 years.
“They are both living on the same floor and it’s so nice to see them together.
“Alan’s family were very impressed with the celebrations and enjoyed the day with the rest of us.
“The family have planned a meal out for Alan and Margaret once their daughter, Melanie comes back to the UK.
“Everyone had a great day, all the staff members got stuck in and sang ‘Happy Birthday’ when Alan came into the room.
