CAKE, candles and balloons were the order of the day when a Sheffield care home resident celebrated her 101st birthday.

Mary Withers marked her impressive anniversary with a special party for staff and relatives at Balmoral Care Home in Woodhouse.

Mary is originally from London but moved to Sheffield later in life, settling in Woodhouse. She once worked as a secretary and enjoyed countryside walks.

Irene Foster, senior nursing assistant at Balmoral, said Mary enjoyed the party.

“You can have good conversations with her, and she’s got a really dry sense of humour at times,” she said. “She’s the oldest resident living here.”
