A centenarian from Houghton was left “over the moon” as she celebrated her 104th birthday with her family by her side.

Betty Kirby, who now lives at Church View Care Home, in Church Lane, Murton, was visited by son Ernest Daunt, grandson Michael Daunt, and Ernest’s partner, Rosemary Warriner, as well as several other family members for a party thrown for her at the care home.

Michelle Daglish, home manager, said: “Betty really enjoyed it, and was over the moon.

“She’s a family-orientated lady, and she had a lovely time on her birthday with her family, staff and other residents at the home.”
