Winnie marks 104th milestone

It was an extra special day for Clitheroe woman Winifred Tomlinson when she celebrated her 104th birthday.

Family and friends gathered at The Clitheroe Residential Home to mark the milestone.

Winifred used to be a teacher and has also run her own corner shop in Barnoldswick.

She retired when she was 70 years old and has always been a very independent and active lady who still continues to make her own hand-crafted cards.

A spokesman for the home said: “There was a celebratory atmosphere and Winnie enjoyed seeing everyone around her. She received lots of cards and flowers.”
