Harriet’s 100th at Douglas Court

Harriet Squires from Douglas Court Care Home enjoyed her special 100th birthday with a party, complete with live music and entertainment held in her honour.

“It’s been a lovely day. I feel very spoiled and my card from the Queen will take pride of place,” said Harriet who has 28 grand and great grandchildren!

Affectionately known as Peggy, Harriet was born in Weston-on-Trent on 23rd May 1919. Happily married to Robert, they raised 3 children and Harriet, always a keen gardener won many competitions including Derby in Bloom. Her love of gardening is being nurtured by Douglas Court with their resident Gardening Club where Peggy won the tallest sunflower competition last year!

“We’re all very fond of Peggy here at Douglas Court. We had a wonderful time celebrating her 100th birthday and it was great to see so many of her family and friends come along to join her,” Lee Daly, Douglas Court Manager.
