Residents and staff at the Ferrars Hall Care Home,  in Huntingdon, all joined in the celebrations when beloved resident Emily Ramsey turned 100 on May 16. 

Emily enjoyed a wonderful party at the care home and was delighted to see her birthday cake, which was created by the home's chef manager and his team. Emily's family gathered in the garden to wish her a 'happy birthday' and thanks to a relaxation in social distancing rules, they were able to take part in the celebrations.

Emily was very proud to receive her birthday card from Her Majesty, The Queen and puts her long-life down to her love of her big family and hard work. 

Home manager Susan Dunnell said: "The team at Ferrars Hall all wished Emily a very happy birthday.

“Emily is a great character and she had a wonderful day celebrating her milestone birthday with us.” 

Emily’s daughter Olwyn said on the day: “Happy 100th birthday mum, I can clearly see how much you are loved and cared for.  

"Thank you Ferrars Hall for all your care and hard work to make mum's day the very best.”
