Colchester Borough Homes Resident Celebrates 106th Birthday

On 25 February 2019, popular Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) resident May Bareham is celebrating her 106th birthday. 

To celebrate this fantastic milestone, CBH have arranged an afternoon tea party for May to enjoy with her friends, family and the staff in the communal lounge of her home in Harrison Court, Colchester. 

May has lived in sheltered accommodation since 1993 and is a much-loved member of Harrison Court's community. At 106 May is CBH's oldest resident, but still gets involved with the social activities that the staff organise.

There will be afternoon tea, birthday cake and treats available for people to enjoy, to mark May's big day.

Gareth Mitchell, Chief Executive at Colchester Borough Homes says, "Everyone here at Colchester Borough Homes would like to wish May a very Happy 106th Birthday. We are pleased to organise this event to mark such an incredible milestone.

"The staff in our Older Person Services team build great relationships with the people living in our sheltered housing schemes. They do a fantastic job of arranging social events and activities for residents to enjoy and I know they will love helping to celebrate May's special day."
