6:50am Wednesday 4th December 2013 in News
A CLASSICAL music lover who worked in Drakelow Tunnels during the Second World War has celebrated her 100th birthday.
Winnie Waldron, of Kidderminster, celebrated with family, friends and staff last Wednesday at Areley House Care Home in Stourport, where she has lived for the past two years.
Miss Waldron was born near Bewdley on November 27, 1913, and attended St Peter’s School in Upper Areley.
She was a member of St George’s choral society and after working in Drakelow Tunnels in wartime, she moved to work in the carpet industry.
Lisa Cooper, activities co-ordinator at Areley House, said: “At the fantastic age of 100, Winnie still joins in all the activities, she particularly enjoys flower arranging, arts and crafts, bingo and scrabble.
“Winnie is a lovely, quiet lady who is popular with all the residents and loved by everyone here at Areley House. It’s a pleasure to spend time with her and she's an inspiration to us all.”
Stourport Mayor and Mayoress Ken and Lin Henderson visited Areley House to help Mrs Waldron celebrate her birthday with tea and cake.
