Lillian celebrates 100th birthday!
by Tom Martin

A NETHERTON pensioner enjoyed a busy week celebrating after she turned 100 years old.

Lillian Chislett, who lives at St Oswald's Court, was joined by family and friends on Friday, July 31 at the sheltered accommodation for a low key party.

She was even joined by Mayor and Mayoress of Sefton Cllr Stephen and Mrs Gwen Kermode who also enjoyed a buffet and drinks to mark the big day.

The following Friday the family booked a room at the nearby Our Lady of Walsingham when friends who live as far as New Zealand made the journey to celebrate with Lillian.

Lillian, who was one of 12 children, grew up in Litherland and worked at a fruit and vegetable shop which was based in Crosby.

Lillian's niece, Lillian Jones, said: “She has had a really nice week and enjoying seeing some family members who she hadn't seen in a long time.

”The party at Our Lady of Walsingham was very well attended which just shows how popular she is. It was a lovely day“.
