Broadwindsor House resident Peggy Ward has just celebrated her 100th birthday with a surprise party.

The management and staff at Broadwindsor House, the care home based close to Beaminster, started by putting 100 balloons down the drive of the home-each balloon saying ‘100 Today’. Then at lunchtime, family and friends plus all the residents joined Peggy for drinks and lunch.

Said Jeannie Rodway, the Manager at Broadwindsor House “Peggy is quite remarkable and one of our most popular residents. You would never believe she is 100 years old. People mistake her for being twenty years younger. She couldn’t believe it when she spotted the balloons. Then she enjoyed the party. If fact she wanted it to go on and on.”
