Here at Summerleaze we had a good reason to celebrate as one of our residents turned 100. To mark the special occasion for Joan Helliwell were family members and friends who enjoyed an afternoon tea with a large cake, beautiful flowers, and a rendition of Happy Birthday. Special Birthday wishes from Her Majesty the Queen were delivered by Exmouth’s deputy mayor Councillor Maddy Chapman.
Joan Helliwell originally from Birmingham had moved to Exmouth from the Chester area with her late husband in 2004 to be closer to her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Joan has been a resident of Summerleaze in Exmouth since 2012, prior to this she enjoyed an active lifestyle including several holidays with her son.
Happy Birthday Joan from all the staff at Summerleaze
