Burnham-On-Sea’s oldest resident has celebrated a very special birthday this week as she reached the grand age of 108.
Margaret Reed celebrated the milestone with a birthday cake, a card from The Queen and a party at Priory Court Care Home in the town.
Margaret is a very independent lady who is an active member of the community in Burnham-On-Sea. She still attends Roman Catholic mass once a week.
“Margaret is an amazing lady and a wonderful part of our family here at Priory Court,” Raji Sunil, Home Manager at Priory Court Care & Nursing Home, told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
“Margaret had a great day and it was a pleasure to celebrate this milestone with her.”
“All the staff and residents have wished her a very happy 108th Birthday.”
Margaret was treated to lunch out with her family in Bridgwater to mark the special day.
