Mrs. Annie Wrigley celebrated her 100th birthday with her friends, family, and the staff of Barley View Care Home.
Always chatty and with a wicked sense of humour and beautiful singing voice, Annie’s 100th birthday was an event that was not to be missed. With recognition from King Charles III by way of a birthday card, a party which rocked the home ensued, organised by the staff at Barley View and with music from the wonderful Ged and Maggie.
Mrs. Wrigley was born in 1923 in Stacksteads, Lancashire, later moving to a farm in Rawtenstall. At 100 years young she is still proud to be independent with most daily activities, which she puts down to one simple choice in her diet. When asked what the secret to a long, healthy life is, she said, “Don’t drink milk – it’s only meant for cows!”
Gemma Dailey, Business Manager at Barley View said, “Ms. Wrigley is a beloved member of our community, and we are honoured to celebrate her 100th birthday with her. We wish her continued health and happiness in the years to come.”
