Clayburn Court care home residents offer romantic advice to young valentines
Two residents from Clayburn Court care home in Peterborough have offered romantic advice to young couples celebrating Valentine’s Day.
Ian Todd, 94, and Jean Wymer, 83, are new to being ‘agony aunts’ but hope their experience of married life will help young couples have a happy and long relationship.
The pair will join the other residents at Anchor’s Clayburn Court in Clayburn Road for a Valentine’s lunch on Thursday 14 February.
Father-of-two Ian, who was married to Milly for 60 years, said the secret to their marriage was to be caring and loving.
Relationships are about partnership. Always respect your wife or husband, be giving and most importantly be best friends.
Jean, who was married to Roy in Peterborough and had three children together, couldn’t agree more, saying respect was the key to a long and happy relationship.
Clayburn Court Manager Tina Dauncey said the Valentine’s lunch was part of a packed programme of activities at the care home.
She said: “This is such an exciting event. There will be lots of fun, colour and wonderful food all made from fresh seasonal ingredients. Older people have a life time of experience when it comes to love so it’s great Ian and Jean can offer younger couples advice.
“The lunch is part of Clayburn Court ongoing programme of interesting activities which aim to stimulate the residents physically and mentally.
“Such events are also a great occasion for residents to socialise with friends and their families.”
