Happy 90th birthday George

Birch Green’s birthday boy George, had a right good old knees up as he celebrated his 90th birthday with us in style.


George, who has been a resident at Birch Green Care Home for three years, previously lived in nearby Upholland and to celebrate his milestone birthday, George was joined by his family and friends, including sons Adrian, Andrew and John and his grandchildren.


Local singer Sophie Bennett stopped by to supply the entertainment, there was lots of singing and dancing and we all had a really great time celebrating Georges's special day.


George received lots of birthday cards, gifts and he rather enjoyed blowing the candles out on a specially made, delicious chocolate cake.


Happy Birthday George – we hope you had a fabulous day.

Roses are red…

At Birch Green we love a chance to celebrate, and Valentine’s Day was no different.


Every resident got a special surprise – waiting for them in the dining rooms on specially decorated tables were a single red rose to mark the occasion.


One of our staff members, Angie, received a special, unexpected gift when a large bunch of flowers were delivered from her husband, Tommy.


Everyone had a lovely heartfelt day.
