Warrington care home resident celebrates 90th birthday with spa surprise


Christine Adams, a resident at Holcroft Grange care home in Warrington, has celebrated her 90th birthday with a surprise spa visit and afternoon tea organised by staff at the Croftwood Care-run residential home.


Christine and her daughter Heather were whisked away to local day spa, Spa Beautiful, where staff donated their time to pamper Christine on her special day. During the spa session, Christine enjoyed a range of beauty treatments, including a facial, massage and manicure.


After receiving a pampering fit for a queen, Christine and her daughter were treated to afternoon tea in the spa’s tearooms where they enjoyed a scrumptious selection of cakes and sandwiches. 


Born in 1926, Christine worked in Domestic Science at Manchester High School for Girls. She married John Adams in 1949, and the pair lived together in Urmston until he passed away shortly before Christine moved to Holcroft Grange. While her hobbies include reading and visiting tearooms, Christine especially enjoys spending time with her friends and family, which includes her daughter, three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.


Shirley Paton, Home Manager at Holcroft Grange, commented: “It was a pleasure to be able to arrange this surprise for Christine on her birthday. She is a lovely lady who loves a good chat over a cup of tea, and we are delighted that she enjoyed the visit to Spa Beautiful and the tearooms. We wish Christine many happy returns and would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Spa Beautiful who helped make Christine’s birthday extra special.”
