George Almond, a resident at Sunrise of Bagshot, celebrated turning 100 on 14th January.
George has been a resident at Sunrise of Bagshot since 2017, and he enjoys the exercise groups at the care home, as well as a daily walk around the landscaped gardens. When Sunrise of Bagshot’s in-house dining team made George’s birthday cake, the icing depicted George’s favourite spot in the garden.
George was born in Northwood, Middlesex, and he lived in Chester for most of his life. In 1952, he married Nona, and they had three children, Diane, Pauline, and Neil. George was an engineer in the electrical supply industry.
George’s fondest memory is his friendship with his late wife, and his top tip for living a healthy life is always looking on the bright side of life and keeping active.
Jane Harris, Activities Coordinator at Sunrise of Bagshot, said:
“George is such a lovely gentleman; it was a pleasure to celebrate his 100th birthday with him. He is regularly joining with exercise and balance groups at Sunrise of Bagshot, and he also really enjoys playing bowls with other residents.”
