Susan Osbourne, an art-loving resident of Redcot care home in Haslemere, celebrated her 86th birthday with joy and creativity, surrounded by family and friends.

Born in 1938, Susan reminisced about her childhood in Canterbury, where she developed a passion for art. "I loved drawing and painting," she said. "Painting, drawing and creating art lets you find and lose yourself all at the same time.”

Married at St Vincent's Church in Littlebourne on her 21st birthday, Susan and her husband Brian raised two daughters. Susan is now a proud grandmother to four grandchildren.

Susan's creative spirit shines through in her daily activities at Redcot. "I still draw and attend arts and craft classes," she said. "I'm a keen knitter and enjoy our Knit and Natter Group."

Celebrating her birthday with a screening of her favourite film, Titanic, and a delightful birthday cake, Susan expressed gratitude for her Redcot family. "I'm very happy living here," she said.
