There was a celebratory atmosphere to mark a Clitheroe woman’s 102nd birthday.

Clitheroe Town Mayor Coun. Valerie Cooper and staff at The Clitheroe Residential Home joined together to celebrate resident Winifred Tomlinson’s 102nd birthday.

Winifred used to be a teacher and has also run her own corner shop in Barnoldswick. She retired when she was 70 years old and has always been a very independent and active lady who still continues to make her own hand-crafted cards.

Winifred enjoyed a buffet lunch with friends and Coun. Cooper. She thanked everyone for their beautiful cards and gift.
