A Special Day at Cramlington House: Bikers Bring Joy to Resident Tom


It was an extraordinary day at Cramlington House recently when a group of bikers roared into the grounds, much to the delight of resident Tom, a lifelong motorcycle enthusiast. The surprise visit was arranged by caring staff member Becky, who wanted to do something special for Tom.

Tom, surrounded by the gleaming bikes and their friendly riders, was thrilled. Talking about the special occasion, Tom said: “This is brilliant! I never thought I’d get to rev a bike again. It feels amazing. The bikers didn’t just bring excitement; they also gifted Tom his own motorcycle number plate and a ‘born to be a biker’ sign, adding a personal touch to an already memorable day.

This visit was more than just a fun event; it was a reminder of the importance of celebrating individual passions and bringing joy to everyday life. For Tom, it was a day that reignited his passion and created a cherished memory at Cramlington House.

Becky said: “Seeing Tom’s face light up as he revved the motorcycle was truly heartwarming. It’s moments like these that remind us of the joy we can bring to our residents’ lives.”
