We recently had seven birthdays all within a few days of each other with a combined age of 626 years.

A surprise party was arranged with a special guest, The Worshipful Mayor of Bournemouth, Councillor Christopher Mayne, who called in to give individual birthday cards to each of the seven.

Said our manager, John Hardy, "It was an amazing coincidence that all seven had their birthdays at the same time. The look on their faces when the mayor appeared was wonderful. I'd like the thank all involved for arranging this. It made many people very happy". Those celebrating birthdays were Olive Digby (88), Sheila Collins (88), Joan Hencoop (90), Herbert (Alfie) Elder 90, Elisabeth Aspden (92), Betty Wrann (90) and Maureen Williams (88).

She is full of tales about years gone by, while also keen to be part of our group of ladies and gents at here at Florence Lodge."

Congratulations to Nora

It's a very special celebration when one of its residents recently celebrated her 93rd birthday. A special afternoon tea was arranged for Nora Cheeseman to celebrate the big occasion.
Born in 1920 Nora still clearly remembers the twenties and thirties saying, "Everything was so different then with few cars and no television. Life was much slower. In some ways things have progressed and in others we have gone backwards. I remember getting our first phone, the end of the Second World War, the Cold War and the first man on the moon - it all seems like yesterday."

I was extremely impressed and it [Florence Lodge] appears to be ‘head and shoulders’ above any others I have seen.
