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!
Brandon Lodge presents Marie Wilson
Marie will celebrate turning 90 next month.
The biggest changes she’s seen over the last 90 years include; Margaret Thatcher being elected as the first female Prime Minister. Marie recalls there being a lot of mixed emotions about the situation.
Marie enjoys celebrating all of the royal events, although she’s not a fan of Prince Phillip, disagreeing with some of the rude things that he says.
In her younger years Marie was a newspaper girl, before working as a barmaid in a working men’s club. She was later names the ‘best fish and chip seller’ in Brandon after helping a friend out with a few shifts.
Now a resident at Brandon Lodge, Marie enjoys spending her days relaxing and joining in with the activities held in the home.
