Published on 22 February 2018 03:39 PM

Day centre member, Gladys Angus, celebrated her 105th birthday with friends at St. Paul's Court on 15 February 2018

The party held at Anchor’s St. Paul’s Court was an early celebration for Gladys, so that her friends at the Age UK Northumberland day centre could mark the occasion with her. Members, staff, volunteers and Trustee, Ralph Firth, surprised Gladys with sweet treats, a rendition of Happy Birthday and lots of decorations. The group then enjoyed a fish and chip lunch before sharing birthday cake together.

Born on Fenkle Street in Alnwick on 17 February 1913, Gladys has enjoyed a happy life with her husband, three children, five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.Gladys hit the news in 2013, when she knitted a full nativity scene at the age of 100!

When asked the secret to a long life, Gladys said, “I don’t know, I don’t do anything different to anyone else!”
