Happy 100th birthday to Anne Gilbert – the oldest guiding stalwart in the country.
Anne, who still lives independently in Longley in Sheffield, celebrates her milestone birthday today.
The sprightly centenarian became a Brownie when she was just eight and was a Brown Owl until the age of 65, although she carried on helping with groups for another 20 years.
She is now a great-grandmother and a treasured member of the Sheffield City Trefoil Guild – guiding for adults.
Anne enjoyed a birthday celebration with family members.
The former haberdashery shop owner said: “I think the secret to a long life is always being on the go.”
