Celebrating Winifred’s birthday with a high tea at Maroochydore

We celebrated Winifred Boyd’s 90th birthday at Arcare Maroochydore with a wonderful high tea in true social distancing style.

Gathering in the hallway outside her suite, her friends at the residence sang her ‘Happy Birthday’ and presented her with gifts.

Team members had also prepared a high tea trolley with a pink and white cake, tea sets and a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

A birthday banner was also placed outside Winifred’s room so other clients and team members could wish her happy birthday throughout the day.

Winifred and her family had left the UK and arrived in Australia in 1965, enjoying the warmer tropical weather.

And during her time in Australia, she made some good friends at the local bowls club and a social club in Adelaide.

Since moving in to Arcare Maroochydore, Winifred has also made many friends and participates in the various lifestyle activities.
