Angela spent time with residents and staff at Kings Park Care Home to mark Care Home Open Day.

The national event – now in its seventh year – sees care homes across the country open their doors and invite members of the public to look round and take part in the activities on offer.

Angela, who worked as a carer in Stockport before she became an MP, said: “It was great to meet staff at Kings Park and see how truly dedicated they are in the care they give to residents. I loved chatting to the men and women that live in the home and the highlight was meeting Wilhelmina. She is 104-years-old and worked as a seamstress for most of her career. Wilhelmina married Samuel and they went on to have two sons, David and Derek. She also has five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

“When I asked what her secret to a long and happy life is, Wilhelmina replied “It was all down to having a loving family. I thought that was beautiful.”
