Mrs Cade celebrated her 100th birthday in style yesterday with her son David, his wife Julia, 28 residents, numerous staff and the Mayor of Waverley, Cllr Liz Wheatley, along with her husband Mike. The all-important card from the Queen had arrived beautifully displayed in a frame.
The Activities team had transformed the activities room into a traditional tea room - complete with embroidered and lace white tablecloths, vintage china and celebratory napkins, banners and balloons. The dainty cakes and sandwiches,which had been beautifully prepared by the chefs, were displayed on traditional cake stands. A glass of champagne for everyone and a slice of birthday cake completed the feast.
This was Mrs Cade's second party as all her family, including four great grandchildren, had joined her on Saturday for a birthday tea.
