Diamond Wedding celebrations at Somerset care home


Nynehead Court hosted an extra special party for resident Alec Smith and his wife Ann, who were celebrating their Diamond Wedding Anniversary.

Alec and Ann were married on 2nd April 1959, and Nynehead Court pulled out all the stops to make their Diamond Anniversary a memorable day. As well as inviting friends to celebrate with the happy couple, the home arranged for a special cake to be made and guests were entertained by Violinist Abigail. Mr and Mrs Smith’s many cards and gifts included a telegram from the Queen, which had been organised by their daughter Alison.

Home Manager Angela Watkins said, “Celebrating 60 years of marriage is a wonderful achievement, and we hope that Alec and Ann enjoyed their day.”

Nynehead Court offers gracious retirement living for older people requiring residential care or close care housing.
