A Great Baddow couple are celebrating their 73rd wedding anniversary.
Doris and Jeff Green live at Baycroft, a care home in Molrams Lane and staff decorated the lounge with anniversary banners and balloons while the hospitality team prepared an elegant buffet-style tea.
Cards and a specially made cake were presented to the couple to mark their milestone and all the residents were invited to the party, whilst keeping safe by following social distancing rules.
Doris said: “We are both so happy and pleased with the party, although it is hard with our families being away, we absolutely loved everything.”
Kathryn Dale, Lifestyle and Wellbeing coordinator at the home, said: “This was a great way to celebrate an occasion in the depths of lockdown, a difficult time for us all, but we tried our very best to make it a special occasion for them both.”
