We offer our warmest congratulations to Margaret Willis who celebrated her 100th Birthday on Tuesday 5th May 2015.
Friends and relatives came together at the Baptist Church on Saturday 9th May for a Tea Party to mark the occasion and offer their best wishes.
Margaret was born in Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk on 5th May 1915, and trained as a nurse at St Mary Abbots Hospital in London.
She was a district nurse for many years and then became a sister at the Chalfont Colony for Epileptics, where she worked until her retirement.
Although she lost her husband 40 years ago, Margaret has lived very independently since that time, with the support of her family and friends.
Pictured with Margaret are son Keith and Daughter-in-law Stephanie.
