Colchester Borough Homes' resident celebrates 104th birthday

22nd February 17

104th birthday celebration

May Bareham, a Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) resident, will be celebrating her 104th birthday on 27 February. To celebrate this momentous occasion, CBH have organised an afternoon tea party for May to enjoy with her friends, family and the staff in the Communal Lounge at Harrison Court, Colchester, where May resides.


May has been living in CBH accommodation since 1993 and is now very much part of Harrison Court's community. A popular resident, May always takes part in the social activities that staff lay on and at 104 will be CBH's oldest resident living in sheltered accommodation. As part of May's afternoon tea party, fun games have been lined up in consultation with May to ensure she enjoys her special day and of course plenty of sweet treats and birthday cake will be in abundance.


Gareth Mitchell, Chief Executive at Colchester Borough Homes says, "On behalf of everybody at Colchester Borough Homes, I would like to wish May a very happy 104th birthday. We're really pleased to have been able to organise these birthday celebrations which are a fantastic example of the community spirit that exists in all our Sheltered Housing and the great relationships our Older Persons Services Team have with our residents."


Yvonne Day, Older Person's Services Manager for Colchester Borough Homes says, "May is really looking forward to her tea party and being able to celebrate this special birthday with her friends, family and staff at Harrison Court."
