Mary’s Birthday Bash

Birthday Bash

There was a very special birthday girl at the Day Centre recently. Mrs Mary McMillan was 99 years young! A fantastic achievement! Mary is a remarkable woman and is one of the longest serving members at Coronation Day Centre. A favourite dinner of Mary’s was served followed by birthday cake

Many Happy Returns Mary.

Diamond Celebrations

Diamond Celebrations.


On Friday 12th of April the Day Centre played host to Mr & Mrs Little as they celebrated they’re Diamond Wedding. 60 years of wedded bliss, which was confirmed by Des and Vera, by renewing their marriage vows with Reverend Tom McWhirter before their family and friends.   The hall was beautifully decorated in pink and white with posies of spray carnations and helium balloons on all the tables.

Guests sat down to a set three course menu which was followed by toasts,  speeches and a most wonderful poem, about from when Des and Vera met until the present day, read out by their daughter Jane. After the cutting of the cake, the band for the afternoon, Tom and John Agnew, invited the happy couple to take to the floor for the first dance.

The rest of the afternoon was spent dancing and singing before being brought to a close with ‘For They are Jolly Good Fellows’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne’

Everyone at the Coronation Day Centre wishes Des and Vera many more years of happy memories

Congratulations Des and Vera           des and vera
