Birthday bash shines spotlight on Queen for the day in Galgorm

Some of us tend to do a quick search to see if anyone famous shares the same birthday as us.

Thursday 21st April sees Her Royal Highness, Queen Elizabeth II, celebrate her 90th birthday. She shares her special day with Mable Knox, a resident at Galgorm Care Home in Ballymena. To celebrate the home will shine a spotlight and hold a party to celebrate Queen for the day, Mabel’s 89th birthday.

Mable KnoxMabel lives at Galgorm with her husband Charles, and they recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. In her younger days Mable worked locally in the Mill (alongside Charles) and enjoyed frequent nights out to dances in the Flamingo. Mable has met the Queen on one occasion, and said: “she was a very nice and pleasant lady. She came to Ballymena to celebrate the millennium.”

Lisa McDonald, Home Manager said: “Both Mabel and Charles are fantastic residents, and everyone here at Galgorm can’t wait to celebrate Mable’s big day with her. I want to take this opportunity to say, happy birthday Mable, you truly are our Queen for the day.”

Everyone at Four Seasons wishes you many happy returns!
