Royal Tea Party to celebrate resident's royal birthday

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 Sheila Reid, a resident at Bearehill Care Home in Brechin. To celebrate the home will hold a royal tea party to celebrate Sheila’s 77th birthday in style.

When asked about what it’s like to share her birthday with the Queen, Sheila explained: “It’s nice to share a birthday with the Queen, although she’s a bit older than me it’s nice to watch her grow up and become the Queen we all know and love.”

Karen Millington, Home Manager said: “Sheila is very friendly and loves chatting to staff and other residents at Bearehill. She enjoys making pom poms, watching the soaps and music. She loves it when the home brings in local entertainers. Sheila enjoys getting out and about with her sister and brother-in-law and having a cup of tea and a slice of cake at Morrisons or at the Brechin Garden Centre.

“Although she’s never met the Queen, Shelia loves to watch her on the television. She loves the Queens colourful outfits and the crowns that she wears. We all wish Sheila a happy birthday and look forward to tucking into some tea and cake later.”

Everyone at Four Seasons wishes you many happy returns!
