Lily celebrates her century...
by Henry James

FAMILY, friends and staff at Birch Green Care Home, gathered to mark a very special occasion when resident, Lily Coltman celebrated her 100th birthday.

Originally from North Wales, Lily was joined by four generations of her family for the big day - son and daughter-in-law, Malcolm and Vera, grandchildren, Spencer and Melissa and great-grandchildren, Lily junior (7) and five-year-old Finlay.

She also received a message from The Queen and was presented with a special cake, courtesy of Birch Green cooks, Alison James and Sarah Daily.

Singer, Chris Dale and Lily’s friend, Mary O’Connell also joined in the celebrations.

Cathy Hague, acting general manager at Birch Green, said: “Lily puts her long life down to being active and not thinking about her age and everyone here at Birch Green wished her all the best on this special occasion.

”She told us if she could do it all again, she would do everything the same - which was lovely to hear.“
