SPRIGHTLY great great grand­mother Ethel Sharp had a pleas­ant shock for her 90th birth­day on Sun­day when 80 of her fam­ily and friends gath­ered for an un­ex­pected cel­e­bra­tion party. The grand old lady of Willes­bor­ough, lives alone and cares for her­self op­po­site the VG store in Gladstone Road which she ran for years with her late hus­band Bert. The sur­prise party was held for her at the Sandy­acres sports pavil­ion. Ethel was ex­pect­ing to be taken to a grand­child’s birth­day but in­stead found that her land­mark date made her the cen­tre of at­ten­tion with five grand­chil­dren, 10 grand­chil­dren, three great great grand­chil­dren, friends and for­mer cus­tomers all gath­ered to­gether for her birth­day. Peo­ple trav­elled from across the coun­try for the party.
