Fresh air is key for Bella,100

Have your say

STAFF at Tickhill Road Day Hospital in Balby put on a party for Bella Strutt to celebrate her 100th birthday.

Bella, from Edlington, was one of seven children and has two daughters and three grandchildren.

She has never smoked, only drinks alcohol occasionally, and puts her longevity down to plenty of fresh air, good food, and a happy marriage.

Bella was married for 40 years.

As a young adult, Bella worked as a kitchen maid and then went on to spend many years working as a school cook.
