108th birthday celebrations at Highfields Care Home

Mary and her niece, Julia reading her birthday card from the Queen.

On the 2nd December our lovely resident Mary Goddard celebrated her 108th birthday surrounded by her friends and family here at Highfields Care Home. Mary was born in South Shields on 2nd December 1909 and joined the Highfields family in 2016.

She has always been a very active and independent lady throughout her life and was a keen golfer until she was 83 years old! This side of her can still be seen by her participation in the activities available at our home and in the outings she attends.

Mary had a great day and I speak for the whole team when I say it was a pleasure to celebrate this special milestone with her.

Highfields Care Home is located in Newark, Nottinghamshire and provides nursing care, palliative care, residential care and respite care.
