Hard-worker Winifred celebrates 100 years with party
7:30am Saturday 24th May 2014 in News
Keen gardener Winifred Spencer celebrated her 100th birthday with a party at the Borrins Bupa care home in Baildon yesterday.
Staff at the home said she was “overwhelmed” by the occasion, during which she was inundated with cards from well-wishers.
She returned to Baildon to work in office administration, living in the town for most of her life.
Lynn Rhodes, a care assistant at the Borrins, said Winifred had a real love of gardening and put the secret of her long life down to the “importance of hard work.”
“She is still very independent, and a really lovely lady,” she said. “She has really enjoyed the day.”
