A wealth of generations have come together to celebrate a resident’s 101st birthday at Mundy House Care Home in Basildon

Nora English enjoyed a party with fellow residents and members of her family, including her daughter Gill Simmons, who regularly praises Mundy House for the work it does, as well as its fantastic members of staff.

Surrounded by beautiful flowers, a wonderful cake, and an impressive collection of cards, Nora had a lovely time celebrating and sharing many entertaining stories from her life.

Nora was married to her husband Archie, and after he passed away she met Tom, who she was with for ten years. She has had seven children – five daughters, Gill, Beryl, Mandy, Molly and the late Kathleen and two sons, Keith and Roger.

Keeping Active
