A Weston-super-Mare woman reached an impressive landmark this weekend, celebrating her 102nd birthday.
Winifred Burnham, who lives at Highcroft Nursing Home, reached the milestone on Saturday.
She celebrated with a party at the nursing home alongside her family – including her son Brad and daughter Kate George.
After stints living in Southend and London, Buxton-born Winifred moved to Weston in the 1950s and worked as a secretary – having previously worked in ammunitions during World War Two.
She has two grandchildren and three great-grandchildren who joined her to mark her birthday.
When Winifred was born, Herbert H Asquith was Prime Minister, World War One was being fought and Sheffield United were the holders of the FA Cup.
Winifred’s son Brad Burnham said: “102 is a great age. It really was a lovely day celebrating her birthday.”
