It was a special day at Twyford House Care Home on Monday as resident Marie Lycett celebrated her 107th birthday!

Marie, originally from Congleton, moved to the home July 2022 and has been enjoying the next chapter of her life amongst new friends. She is a regular participant in daily activities and enjoys walks around the garden and tending to the flower beds. In her younger years she was involved with the WI and her local church.

Jane Haines, General Manager of the home said

“It’s an absolute privilege to be able to celebrate with such an inspirational lady and the team made sure she had a special day.”

The home recently ran a social media campaign asking for the general public to send cards to the lovely Marie with the aim of reaching 107. Close of play yesterday they had received 397 plus a card from King Charles and Mayor Rod Fletcher who personally hand delivered his. The home welcomed endless visitors throughout the day including BBC Radio, Alsager Nub News, local press and Shady Grove Stores who donated lots of flowers and plants for the garden. Local school children from Highfields Community Primary and Excalibur delivered hand made cards as well.

Marie thanked everyone for making her day so special and said it was honestly the best birthday she have ever had in her whole life!
