A Nottinghamshire resident has celebrated her 100th birthday (on Friday 4 December 2020) with staff and friends at Church Farm at Field House in Radcliffe-on-Trent.
The Field House team held a party for Madge Parker, complete with a special cake topped with her favourite sweet treat of chocolate eclairs and of course, a telegram from the Queen.
Madge marked her birthday with a special haircut from the one of the Field House team, before enjoying a visit from her daughter Pauline who celebrated with her mum through the window. Madge’s family plans to hold another party as soon as they can all attend in person.
Madge attributes her long life to working hard as a long-term employee of Ransome & Marles in Newark (as well as a sherry or two), plus her life-long passion for gardening and enjoying holidays as well as being in the company of family and friends.
Angela Anuzis, manager at Field House, which is part of Church Farm Care, said: “Madge has become such an important part of our family since joining in 2018; it was so great to be able to hold a small party along with all the friends she has made here to celebrate her birthday.”
Madge was born in Lincolnshire and is one of seven children. She married her husband Jack at the age of 21 and has one daughter, Pauline.
