Rather than The Queen's 90th birthday being marked with a gun salute, residents at Richmond Bede Retirement Village in Bedworth decided to celebrate with afternoon tea instead!
Receptionist, Wendy Taylor, shares her birthday with The Queen today... so Bede Village had Queen Wendy ruling for the day.
And resident Winnie Cooke will be celebrating her 98th birthday tomorrow. Winnie said ‘I’ve shared my birthday with the Queen for a long time now... people never forget when it is.’ But she also wanted to point out that ‘she got here first!’
Louise Smith, Activities Manager, said ‘ It’s been wonderful sharing the Queen’s birthday with a traditional English ‘tea.’ It’s been lovely seeing everybody smile and reminiscing about the past.’
