Manor House Knaresborough resident celebrates 100th birthday
Ivy Ingle celebrated turning 100 at a party with residents and staff.
Centenarian Mrs Ingle blew out her candles at the party held for her at The Manor House in Knaresborough on Hambleton Grove.
On the day, Ivy received a bouquet of one hundred roses from the team at The Manor House, as well as a special cake from Betty’s cake shop and the traditional Telegram from the Queen.
Ivy’s daughter, Val, also wished her mum a happy birthday in person while inside The Manor House Knaresborough’s special visitation pod.
Mrs Ingle, who said she still had memories of the Queen’s coronation in 1952, said:
I really enjoyed spending the day with everyone, although I don’t feel 100 that’s for sure! There is no secret to a long happy life, but I have certainly enjoyed mine and I have been very happy with it. My advice to others is to not feel regret for things you have or haven’t done. Things don’t always go like you want them to, but you shouldn’t let that stop you from living your life to the fullest.
Adel Pangilinan, Manager of The Manor House Knaresborough, said:
Mrs Ingle is a lovely person. She always likes to take part in the activities in the home. She loves reminiscing and enjoys our monthly tea party where we order lovely cakes from betty’s tearoom in Harrogate. Ivy loves Betty’s, especially their fondant fancies, and she was absolutely delighted when they made her a cake for her birthday!
