Local resident celebrates 100th birthday
Miriam Elizabeth Tomlinson, from Nottingham, celebrated turning 100 on 10 August at Anchor Hanover’s Carlton Fold housing scheme in Colwick.
As part of the special celebrations, Miriam was presented with a birthday cake, flowers, balloons and a telegram from the Queen. To mark the momentous occasion, she enjoyed a special buffet at Carlton Fold housing scheme and blew out her 100 candles alongside friends, family and fellow residents. She was also treated to a special meal out with her family.
Centenarian Miriam, who has lived at Carlton Fold housing scheme for over 33 years, is Nottingham born and bred. She was born on Manvers Street where she lived with her family in the only house on the street at the time. She was part of the Women’s Land Army for four years and then worked at a factory on the site of the current National Ice Centre on Belward Street for over 20 years making boxes. Mariam was married for 50 years and has a son, Stuart, and granddaughter, Dawn.
I’ve had a very comfortable life and feel very fortunate to have reached this age. A big thank you to all my family, friends and everyone at Carlton Fold housing scheme for making my big day so special.
