The Hermitage care home at Whittlesey has been celebrating the 100th birthday of one of its residents.

Lilian Taylor reached the age of 100 surrounded by family and friends at home.

Mrs Taylor moved into The Hermitage in April 2018 after living for 99 and a half years in the very house she was born in, a short walk from The Hermitage.

She married at St Mary’s church in Whittlesey in August 1941. She has two grandchildren, five great grandchildren and five great great grandchildren who all visit her regularly at The Hermitage.

She worked also in Whittlesey until she was 70 years old.

Judy Wilson, home manager, said: “Lillian worked at Burdetts garden centre as well and was, I hear a fantastic assistant for Tony Sharpe and Mrs Perkins at their grocery and bakery shop in Market Street Whittlesey.”

Mrs Wilson added; “I think Lilian can well and truly say she is a ‘Whittlesey’ girl! “Lilian has had many birthday wishes passed to her through her lovely birthday pictures being seen on the Whittlesey Community Page and Whittlesey Town Free Discussion Facebook pages.”
