Celebrating this milestone at Fernes Care Home, Catisfield, with friends, family and staff, Betty says: ‘It’s an achievement, you can’t do anything about it so make the most of it.’

Born on May 20, 1926, in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, Betty now enjoys living near Fareham where she is regularly visited by her daughter Jane and son-in-law Andrew.

Throughout her life, Betty always worked in an office. It was through work she met her husband Barry and the couple tied the knot on Boxing Day in 1964.
