THREE special visitors to a Scarborough day care centre enjoyed a birthday treat with a difference – after celebrating four years of attendance at the facility.

Margaret Birkinshaw, Eileen Atkinson and Jean Link were honoured by Orchard House, in Scalby Road, during a colourful ceremony to mark their many visits to the centre since it opened four years ago.

The trio were presented with flowers and biscuits to recognise the occasion and other visitors also got into the spirit of things by creating a special birthday cake for them to enjoy.

Orchard House director June Stephenson said she was delighted to have commemorated the ladies’ dedication.

She said it was especially pleasing to see visitors constantly come back to the centre and said Mrs Link attends five times a week.

She said two other visitors, Ellenor Bacon and Miss Elsie Arnell, have also been visiting for four years but were unable to make the special ceremony.
