Poetry Lovers Celebrate First Wedding Anniversary At Norwich Home

Two residents who met at a Norwich home celebrated their first wedding anniversary.

Bill and Pauline Capp got married in September 2022 after meeting one another at MHA Cromwell House.

Bill (99) moved into the home in July 2020 and Pauline (88) in February 2021.

The pair started off as friends after taking part in various activities and events at the home and it was their mutual love of poetry which played a part in turning their friendship into marriage.

To mark the occasion the home arranged for an anniversary party where residents and staff joined in with the celebrations.

Speaking after the party Pauline said:
“The home did a great job in making sure we had a great time.

“Our activities coordinator Angie and chef Adriana deserve a huge amount of credit as they worked very hard.

“There comes a point in many people’s lives when they are no longer able to care for themselves and they must look for somewhere to spend their time.

“We are very different people and have led very different lives, so there are times when we find ourselves at crossroads, but when we don’t it’s all tickety boo.

“We are both very fortunate to have found each other at MHA Cromwell House and everyone at the home does an amazing job.

“It’s great to share the ups and downs with someone at our age and we are both very happy.”
