A SWEET treat was the icing on the cake for Hilda Thorneycroft to help celebrate her remarkable 104th birthday.
The former sweet maker’s incredible milestone was shared with family and friends at Headingley Park Care Home, Edlington, where Hilda is a resident.
A party was held for the mum-of-one, grandmother-of-two, and great-grandmother who formerly lived in Maltby and Warmsworth.
Son Keith, aged 80, of Warmsworth, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement and she really enjoyed the day. The staff at Headingley Park made it a wonderful event.”
