She said: “I moved to Stanbridge House from my home in Hampshire to be nearer to my family and remain her to this day.”

Margery used to love to knit and crochet but said she could not sew. She said she was ‘the worst’ at sewing and could not even sew on a button.

Alana Sawyer from Stanbridge House said: “Margery is a real character and is loved by everyone at the rest home.”
