A CARE home man­ager was able to have a wish come true as she took to the skies above Den­ham, as a thank you from her gen­er­ous col­leagues.

Kerry Pot­ter, Su­san Lotz, Den­nis Mur­gett and Lisa Fisher, of Den­ham Manor, pre­sented Julie Twi­dle with a sur­prise voucher on Wed­nes­day De­cem­ber 14 for a Christ­mas flight above the vil­lage.

Den­ham Aero­drome is at the bot­tom of the gar­den of the care home, which pro­vides spe­cial­ist nurs­ing care for up to 44 el­derly res­i­dents.

Kerry said: “I love to give gifts and I love Christ­mas. We wanted to say a big thank you to Julie for be­ing a great man­ager and we re­mem­bered her say­ing it would be nice to see Den­ham from an aero­plane.

“Life’s too short to not do the things you want to do, so we de­cided to buy her a ride from the lo­cal air­field.”

Julie, who lives in Cam­bridgeshire, said: “It was fan­tas­tic. We were in the air for 30 min­utes and went far and wide, even to Princes Ris­bor­ough.

“I even had con­trol of the plane at one point. It was dual con­trol though, so to­tally safe.

“I have a cer­tifi­cate to say I have taken my first flight from Den­ham Aero­drome. It is some­thing I will al­ways re­mem­ber.”
