A GREAT-GRANDMOTHER celebrated a magnificent milestone – and marked 100 years in the same Hambledon home.

Ena Brown reached her 100th birthday at the weekend and has remarkably lived in the same cottage since birth.

She was joined by friends and family to celebrate her birthday at Hambledon Methodist Chapel and was bowled over by the number of people who turned up to mark the occasion.

Mrs Brown said: ‘It was chock-a-block!

‘I could not count all the people that were there. They gave me a special seat to sit in.’

Mrs Brown, who is the mother to daughters Pam, 72, and Sylvia, 71, added: ‘I don’t feel any different.

‘I have been in the same house and never thought about moving.

‘Why do people move? Because they don’t like the place.’
