Earlier this summer, residents and staff at Ridgemount care home in Banstead held their annual Summer Fayre, attended by a representative of Her Majesty the Queen.

The guest, Lord Lieutenant Michael More-Molyneux, accompanied by his wife Sarah, joined the residents for their Right Royal Street Party themed party to continue the celebrations for the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Although the Queen herself was unable to attend the Ridgemount Summer Fayre, the residents living at the care home wrote to Her Majesty about the event and to share birthday wishes.

To everyone’s surprise, the Queen's lady-in-waiting, on behalf of Her Majesty, wrote back:

 BP letter

Queen's card

Residents and staff at Ridgemount were thrilled to receive the letter. Home Manager Sue Towndend said: “We are so pleased; we are going to frame it!”
