Linson Court resident celebrates 100th birthday

Queenie Bishop celebrated her 100th birthday in style last week, with cake and a sing song with family and friends at Linson Court Care Home. Queenie, who is Linson Court’s oldest resident, was treated to songs from her favourite film ‘The Sound of Music’ and received her telegram from the Queen. Her one son and two grandchildren visit daily and helped to organise the party. Queenie loves to recall stories of her past including always riding a bike with a basket on the front, and reminisces about a gorgeous fur coat which she sold for £5.00 but knows she could have sold it for a lot more. Queenie also enjoys bowls, chair dancing, Sunday roasts and watching The Jeremy Kyle Show with her best friend Barbara. Kyomi Kershaw, Activities Co-Ordinator at Linson Court Care Home said: “Queenie is a delight, she is so outgoing and happy, and looks very young for her age! We had a lot of fun celebrating her birthday.”
