Great Cornard care home resident Iris Day celebrates 100th birthday
A very special celebration took place for Catchpole Court Care Home resident Iris Day last weekend.
She was joined by her family and friends on the occasion of her 100th birthday.
Mrs Day, who lived in Great Cornard and worked as a home help in Sudbury during her working life, was treated to a visit from an entertainer, while her daughter, Jackie, baked her a birthday cake.
Colleen Sagon, activity leader at the home, said the birthday party went very well.
“She was surrounded by her family, who sang congratulations,” she said.
“I think she was quite overwhelmed.”
She said Mrs Day’s son, Joe, and daughter, Jackie, attended the event, along with three grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild.
“Iris got a card from the Queen to congratulate her on becoming 100,” added Colleen.
