Care Home Resident Celebrates 103rd Birthday

A resident at a care home in Raunds has celebrated her 103rd Birthday.

Margaret Tirebuck, a mother of three from Suffolk, celebrated her milestone on 7 June.

Margaret met her husband, Bill, in 1947 in the East End of London at his cousin’s party. Margaret worked on a Halifax Bomber at deHavilands in Hatfield with his cousin putting the rivets in their wings. She also had a lot of responsibility from the age of 14 after her mother passed away, meaning she had to dedicate her time to looking after her siblings and family.

The birthday girl enjoyed celebrations both at Ashfield House and local social club, Can Do.

Margaret moved into Ashfield House in December 2021 and loves to knit and do crosswords on a daily basis. She says her secret to longevity is good, clean living.

Lizzie Plummer, service manager of Ashfield House, said: “I’m so pleased we are a part of this special occasion for Margaret. She is a joy to have here at the home and we all love listening to her stories.”
