Abbeyfield Castle View House resident Connie Hindle celebrated her 102nd birthday in style with family, friends and some of her fellow residents.

Connie, who taught for many years at the old Clitheroe Girls’ Grammar School, is pictured with Ribble Valley Borough councillor Mark French and Trudy Walne, the current Lady Captain at Clitheroe Golf Club.

A keen golfer in her younger years, Connie still follows the sport avidly.

At a party in her honour at the residential home, she commented: “ I really don’t think I would be here today if it wasn’t for Abbeyfield.”

A resident for more than 20 years, Connie enjoys her independence but said she values the friendly family environment and the very much enjoys the home cooked food served every day.
