A visit from the Lord Mayor of Sheffield and a telegram from the Queen made for an unforgettable 100th birthday party.

Alice Watford celebrated her century in style with friends and family at her care home in Halfway.

Guests at Knowle Hill Residential Home on Streetfields, Halfway, also enjoyed a singer-comedian entertainer.

Mother-of-two Alice, originally from Mosborough, chatted with Mayor Coun Peter Rippon – before enjoying a quick nap halfway through the occasion. Carer Linda Derrett said: “I think it’s fantastic she’s hit 100. She doesn’t look it at all.

“She’s quite fit, she walks around with a stick and is still very independent.

“Alice is a character. She’s a bit quiet, but she’s still a character and she’s settled in well.

“We had a cake and a buffet. She enjoyed the party and watching everybody dance, but she did fall asleep halfway through.

“It was brilliant that the mayor came too. It really made it special for her.”
