Two cakes with candles and some pretty helium balloons were among the treats to celebrate a 100th birthday at Redbond Lodge.
Sally Brown’s lockdown birthday was also boosted by a card from the Queen.
Sally lived in various locations during her younger years, including London and Brighton, then moved to Baddow when she married Bert.
She was sadly widowed when Bert passed away aged just 48.
Her daughter Sharon said that when her mum moved to Dunmow, she loved it and announced she wasn’t moving again, deliberating chosing to move into Redbond from Oakroyd Avenue so she could stay in the town.
