Happy Birthday to Edna Southworth. Edna celebrated her 102nd Birthday today 12/06/2018. Edna has lived in Bury all her life. She attended Elton Primary School and Elton High School. Edna was born in Scholes Street and Later bought her marital home in the same street! Edna thinks fondly of her younger days dancing at Bury Palais where she met her husband. Edna has one son, Christopher. Edna Retired at the age of 60 from Sam Kays Factory in Bury, where she worked as a sorter.

Edna celebrated her birthday by going out for lunch with her family before coming back to Abbeywood for a party.

Edna said the key to living such a long and happy life was because she has never been a drinker because she couldn’t afford it, and now she can afford it, she can’t drink it!.

A tremendous afternoon at our summer fair yesterday. Thanks to Carol and the Management team not forgetting all the staff, residents family’s who were involved and to everyone who came.
