Lincoln woman celebrates 100th birthday in style

A resident at a care home near Lincoln recently celebrated her 100th birthday wearing a tiara after receiving a card from the queen.

Olive Paul is a resident at Willow Court on Croft Lane in Cherry Willingham, where she celebrated her milestone birthday on August 7.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic the party Olive’s family had planned for her couldn’t go ahead, but the care home made sure she still had a birthday to remember.

Olive, who used to work as a home hairdresser and at a plastic factory when she was younger, received a large amount of cards, gifts and flowers.
