Celebrations have been in full swing at Wimborne, as one resident reached her 108th birthday in style. Muriel was joined by staff, relatives, friends and other residents as she received a telegram from the Queen in recognition of her landmark birthday.
Muriel was born in 1910 in West Norwood, Borough of Lambeth in London. Muriel had two children, and has three grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She married in September 1939 just as the Second World War started and her husband was sent to India for six years, when he returned to England after the Second World War. Muriel’s husband was a Doctor whilst Muriel was a house wife and they both enjoyed playing golf.
Staff at Wimborne arranged a party for Muriel and toasted her birthday with drinks, cake and presents.
