A FORMER sweet shop worker from Seaforth has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Ethel Wright marked the special day, on Sunday, May 17, by inviting her friends and family to her home.

The former Star of the Sea pupil also received a telegram from the Queen to congratulate her on turning 100 years old.

Ethel has lived in Seaforth all her life and worked in a sweet shop up until the beginning of World War Two when she plied her trade in an ammunition factory.

She married Louis Wright and had three children, David, Marie and Pat before her husband passed away in 1996.

Ethel had six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

When asked for her secret to a long and healthy life, son David said: “She has never drank and gave up smoking when she was sixty, so maybe that's the secret!”
