Residents receive letter from the Palace after sending a Diamond Jubilee birthday card to the Queen.

STAFF and residents at Fremington Manor care home in Barnstaple have been given the ‘royal seal of approval’ after receiving a letter from Buckingham Palace.

Earlier this year residents at the Care South home created a special birthday card for The Queen during their weekly arts and crafts session, congratulating her on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.

They were delighted to receive a letter from one of The Queen’s ladies-in-waiting, thanking them personally for their message to Her Majesty.

“It was an amazing surprise for all our residents to receive such an important letter from Buckingham Palace,” said Corinne Topps, Matron at the Manor.

“We were all delighted to send our best wishes to The Queen for her Diamond Jubilee, and very proud and honoured to have received such a lovely response.”
