Elderly residents from Cooper House were thrilled to be invited to visit the Lord Mayor’s Office for a special afternoon tea following his visit to the home’s summer fayre.
The Lord Mayor, Abid Hussain, said that the Town Hall was for the citizens of Bradford, and that Cooper House’s residents deserved the utmost respect from everybody in the local community, as they had given a lot back to the city during their lifetimes.
Residents shared stories of Bradford, and Betty Whiteley, a resident, recalled visiting the Town Hall before to make collections after the war. The residents said they were treated like royalty and enjoyed tea and cake, and were excited to use the Lady Mayoress’s dressing area.
The Mayor took time to have photographs taken of the residents and now has a page dedicated to them in his visitors’ book.
Cooper House supports elderly people, and is located in Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Sarah Horner, Home Manager, said: “Our residents really enjoyed their visit. They got so much out of it and have been talking about it ever since. After meeting our residents at the summer fayre last year, the Mayor really enjoys learning about how they are getting on.”
Nicola Bales, Managing Director for the North, Scotland and Northern Ireland at Priory Adult Care, said: “It is great to hear how involved Cooper House is with the local community. I am so glad their residents had such an excellent time and that it brought back many positive memories.”
