Two St Albans care home residents were made to feel like royalty at celebrations for their hundredth birthdays.
Louise Hughes and Winnie Jeffs both celebrated their centenaries at Grace Muriel House on Friday, December 15.
Winn said: “I feel like the Queen!”
Louise said: “The party was a wonderful surprise.”
A retired teacher, Louise said she enjoyed a simple life and had found teaching rewarding, getting as much from the children as they got from her.
