Mabel, 102, celebrates birthday with fish and chips
7:00am Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A 102-year-old celebrated her birthday at a fish and chip restaurant.
Bradford-born Mabel Raine (pictured), a former mill girl and school dinner lady, celebrated the milestone with family at the Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley, where pianist Nigel Wears serenaded her.
She said: “I have a lot of family in the Bradford area and going back to the Wetherby Whaler in Guiseley really was like a walk down memory lane for me. I love fish and chips so it seemed appropriate to go back to my roots and enjoy my favourite meal at the same time!”
Mrs Raine, a mother-of-one, was married to her husband Wilfred for 54 years until his death.
