Resident, Phyllis, turned 100 in December, so, in addition to us throwing a surprise party for her, where she was joined by some of her closest friends and family members, she also received visits from two local school.
On the day before her birthday, around 10 girls from Beaconsfield High School arrived with a bag full of Christmas goodies and presents. They had an extra special bag full of around 30 cards, some of which were handmade, to congratulate Phyl on turning 100. Phyl was delighted and a little bit blown away by the generosity and kindness of the girls.
On Phyl’s 100th birthday, we received a visit from around 20 children from Chalfont St Peters Church of England Academy, who performed a mixture of songs from their Christmas performance, but were keen to sing a very special song for a very special lady, and finished their performance by singing 'Happy Birthday' to Phyl.
Many of the children were keen to know what the secret is to live to 100 and were asking questions about Phyl's secret.
Overall, Phyl was in awe of all the gifts, cards and well-wishes she received from the children, and all those at Chalfont Lodge as well.
