Good reason to party

A 100th birthday and leaving celebration gave residents and workers at Brackley Fields Country House Residential Home reason to let their hair down last week.

Alice Hearne turned 100 years old on Friday, July 25, and shared her mammoth celebration with cook Sandra Scott, who was leaving Brackley Fields after fifteen years service.

Co-proprietor of Brackley Fields, John Rayner, said: "Alice came to us on January 18, 2003, she's very active and still plays the piano.

"She has about 135 birthday cards and enough flowers to fill a whole room - the place looked like a florist's shop!

"She's very popular in the community here."

He added: "We all went out to a pub for Sandra's leaving do and the number of presents and things she received can only serve as an indication of the fondness and esteem in which she is held"

Mrs Scott is leaving her job at Brackley Fields to try her hand at cake artistry, creating cake decorations using fine sugar.
