The theme for Care Home Open Day this year focuses on celebration and the Queen’s 90th birthday. Here at Four Seasons Health Care we thought it would be nice to share some of our resident’s stories who are also celebrating their 90th year!
Hopes Green presents Gwendoline Stratford
Gwendoline aka Gwen will turn 90 next month on the 14th July.
The biggest changes she’s seen in her lifetime are the increase in traffic. Gwen used to play on the street when she was a child and remembers very few cars passing her by now it’s a constant stream. Also the invention of the colour TV is great as Gwen is a self-confessed TV addict with her daily programmes ruling her routine.
Gwen grew up alongside her sister in Tottenham. She got married in 1951 and went on to have daughter Lesley in 1954. Gwen worked as a book keeper at Stanwood Radio before moving onto International Yachts then becoming a dinner lady at King John’s School.
Now a resident at Hopes Green, Gwen loves spending time with her family and friends.
