Olga Brown celebrates her 100th birthday - twice!
A war-surviving resident at Kenton Hall has celebrated two 100th birthdays in September, due to her father incorrectly registering her birthday 100 years ago!
Mother of two, Olga Brown celebrates her ‘real’ birthday on September 21 – but her birth certificate says September 20 due to a mix-up by her father when registering her birth.
Olga celebrated with family, including some who travelled from Canada where Olga used to visit her late sister, at Kenton Hall with two cakes, two cards and two sets of balloons meaning guests enjoyed tucking into twice as many birthday treats.
Residents, relatives, visitors, and our staff members had a great day at our summer fair, with an excellent turnout enjoying some fun in the sun. We also had our annual fun dog show, judged by Patricia Massey which was a great success on the day!
An afternoon at Scotswood Gardens
A wonderful afternoon at Scotswood Gardens with Syd and Lillian. They had a great time planting in the garden and also pots that they have brought back to Kenton Hall.

Our activities team also put together a great visual display documenting the historical significance of the sweet treat.
