Macclesfield Express - - INQUEST TOLD CARE HOME STAFF AND GP MISSED OAP’S F -

A CEN­TE­NAR­IAN who loves noth­ing more than a party and a sing song en­joyed ex­actly that for her 104th birth­day.

With the help of staff at Inger­s­ley Court, in Bolling­ton, Ma­bel Glover cel­e­brated with a party for fam­ily and friends, and a per­for­mance by so­prano He­len Eng­land.

Great, great grand­mother of one Ma­bel, who was spell­bound by the en­ter­tain­ment, said: “I had a won­der­ful day and I loved He­len’s per­for­mance.”

Ma­bel was born in Mac­cles­field and was a pupil at Beech Lane School, leav­ing aged 14 to work at Neck­wear, which made silk scarves and ties.

Ma­bel, who mar­ried her late hus­band Gar­nett when she was 18, has been at Inger­s­ley Court for more than 30 years, first as a res­i­dent in the flats and then at the care home.

She is still in­de­pen­dent and joins in ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ch­eryl Brooks, ac­tiv­ity co-or­di­na­tor, said: “Ma­bel is fan­tas­tic. She has a great sense of hu­mour, she loves to so­cialise, and she’s al­ways so pos­i­tive.

“We were all ex­cited to make her 104th birth­day ex­tra-spe­cial.

“There was a great at­mos­phere dur­ing He­len’s per­for­mance, and ev­ery­one clearly en­joyed the chance to celebrate!”
