Making our resident’s dream come true
Our lovely resident, Florence (Babs) Self, is close to celebrating her 105th birthday on 4th December. Florence has a love of motor bikes, having been on one many years ago, and even has a mock photo in her room of her sitting on a bike wearing leathers! To mark her birthday, our lifestyle manager, Michelle asked Florence if she had a birthday wish this year, to which she answered that her dream was to ride pillion on a motor bike.
Last Sunday, Florence’s wish came true when she was surprised with a whole host of motorbikes, who arrived at Layston Grove ready to take her for a spin around Buntingford. It was lovely to see the happiness and excitement on Florence’s face when she realised, she would get the opportunity to ride on a motor bike once more. Michelle, our lifestyle manager, said “It was amazing to make Babs wish come true, she was so excited and didn’t want to get off. She has been talking about it ever since and has even suggested doing a parachute jump next year!”
Thank you to our local Goldwing society ‘Capital Wings’ for taking Florence out on their motorbikes and making her birthday wish come true to mark this birthday milestone!
