90th birthday at Downshaw Lodge

A resident of Downshaw Lodge Nursing Home, in Ashton-under-Lyne, celebrated a milestone birthday with a party attended by friends, relatives and staff members.

We presented Robert with a beautiful cake to mark his 90th and sang ‘Happy Birthday’. We also dressed the home with balloons and other decorations for the get-together.

Our activities co-ordinator, Adrianna, said: “Robert is an inspiration to us all. He always has a laugh and a joke to share. He loves arts and crafts, and enjoyed us making a fuss of him on his big day. I hope I’m like Robert when I’m 90.”

In other news, our residents have been enjoying the spring sunshine, knocking tin cans over with sandbags. Adrianna bought the traditional fairground game set to try out something different, and it’s become an instant favourite.
