Bay Court Residential and Nursing Home resident Madeline Bullock and several of her friends celebrated her birthday with the tea party and a glass of Prosecco and all her favourite party food.

Two of her daughters were able to attend and witness her open her gifts through a window.

There was also a Zoom conference call during the party so more members of her extended family could be included in the celebrations.

Annmarie Turner, events coordinator at Bay Court, said: “As Covid continues to disrupt our lives, we constantly try to find ways to ensure our residents at Bay Court are still able to enjoy their lives to the full.
