A Valentine’s Day full of love, laughter and happy memories

14 February 2022

Residents spent Valentine’s Day reminiscing over their wedding day

Here at Brook View, team members decorated the in-home café with red and pink balloon hearts and table-top roses, enabling resident couple Audrey and David Vincent to enjoy a romantic lunch. It gave them the opportunity to reminisce about their 51 years of marriage.

They met while attending ballroom dance classes together when David was 37 and Audrey 39.

“It was love at first dance,” said Audrey, a former teacher. “He was quite a dancer and he continues to lead the way, even if I do ‘wear the trousers’ sometimes!”
