A care home in Surrey has celebrated one of its residents reaching 100 years of age this weekend and threw a centenary celebration in her honour.

Margaret Small, resident of Camberley Manor, home to 60 residents in Deepcut, turned 100 on Saturday 13th April. The home hosted a quintessentially British afternoon tea for Margaret and her guests whilst they enjoyed the live music of a harpist as Margaret is a life-long fan of classical music. 

Camberley Manor welcomed Margaret to her party with its own tradition of creating a floral arch to walk underneath made up of team members, residents and Margaret’s own family, including her great grandson. The harpist provided a live rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song during Margaret’s entrance.

Margaret told us “I still feel I am 99 years old! The secret to living a long life is to stay happy and keep active.” 

Business Development Manager, Jo Anderson-Woodley, commented “we have really enjoyed planning and throwing this party for Margaret and her family. The day has been full of special moments which I am sure will be treasured forever. We would like to thank local party planners Love Filled Balloons who provided the stunning decorations for the day and our wonderful harpist, Francisco, who really started the party!”

Camberley Manor is a purpose-built home offering residential, nursing and dementia care in the heart of surrey, with facilities for residents to enjoy including a cinema, hair salon, spa and bistro.
