Merton Mayor Helps Wimbledon Woman Mark Her Centenary

Special party for Hazel's landmark birthday

Wimbledon care home resident Hazel Honeyburne has recently celebrated her 100th birthday, with a party which included a visit from Marsie Skeete, Mayor of Merton.

The party thrown by family, friends and the staff at Arthur House in Arthur Road also included a classical live singer, who performed Hazel’s favourite songs, and a special birthday cake.

Hazel was delighted to receive a telegram and birthday card from the Queen, along with many cards from residents and friends.

The birthday girl was born in Manchester, where she lived with her parents and three sisters. She loves classical musical and has always wished she could play the piano.

Hazel moved to Arthur House in February 2012 and has enjoyed taking part in activities organised by the care staff, attending regular trips to the local park with other residents.

Nicholas Kee Mew, Registered Manager, said: “We are delighted to have celebrated Hazel’s 100th birthday here at Arthur House. She is a remarkable woman with a warm smile and is always happy to partake in activities. We are so proud to have thrown her a birthday party to celebrate this milestone.”

Hayden Knight, Managing Director for the South East, said: “I am proud to see that Arthur House has once again made headlines for its fantastic care for residents. Everyone at Priory Adult Care would like to wish Hazel a wonderful birthday.”
