A centenary celebration rang out for Josie Brown from Little Easton as she turned 100 years old.

Singing, dancing and slices of cake were to hand as Josie, a resident of The Moat House care home, received her special birthday card from the Queen.

Bobbie Thornton, Josie’s daughter, who manages Moat Park retirement village, said: “Mum has lived at The Moat House since March 2016 and is one of its much-loved residents.

“Sharon Thompson, who manages the home, and her team do an absolutely fantastic job looking after her and I can’t thank them enough.

“On behalf of everyone here, staff and residents alike, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish Mum a very happy birthday and offer our warmest congratulations.”

Josie was showered with gifts and celebrated with three generations of family, including her great grandson.
