Florence celebrates 101st birthday with care home party

Family and friends celebrated the 101st birthday of former church volunteer and school pianist Florence Chettle.

Her birthday was marked with a party at Barnfield Care Home, in Chesterfield, where she has lived since March 2018.

Florence was joined by three generations of her family for the day, when she was presented with two specially made cakes, cards and gifts.

She has three children, eight grandchildren and nine great grandchildren who live in Canada, America and Australia, as well as the UK.

Alongside a card from the Queen, members of Florence’s family unable to attend the care home party sent celebratory cards and greetings from around the world.

Florence was born in Nottingham on 15th April 1918.
