Resident receives Royal thank you

Home news


Residents and the team at Ventress Hall recently celebrated the Queen’s 92nd birthday with a royal-themed party, which went on to inspire 82 year-old resident, Jenny Gowling  to send a birthday card to Her Majesty The Queen.

Jenny, with the help of her two sisters, Jean Fieldhouse and Margaret Ross duly sent off the birthday card signed from Jenny and her two cat companions, Monty and Ginger Sally, and then forgot all about it.

The last thing Jenny expected was a response of any kind, so when the letter of thanks arrived from Her Majesty, The Queen, Jenny was not only surprised, but thrilled to pieces!
