Birthdays at Nursing Home in Cockermouth

It has been such a busy month for birthday’s we have had four birthdays this month. I am going to give an extra shout out to Mary Huddart who came down stairs especially for her birthday and to enjoy a glass of champagne.

Special thank you goes out to our Catherine Butterworth in the kitchen.  Catherine made an amazing horse racing track birthday cake for Raymond. It was fabulous well-done Catherine.
