A grand 100th birthday
Betty’s favourite rolls and sausage were on the menu at surprise party . . .
The congregation of a Rutherglen church gave a birthday surprise to one of their oldest members.
Betty Skinner was born right in the middle of World War One, on August 14, 1916.
And to mark her landmark birthday, members of Rut h e rglen West and Wardlawhill Church decided to throw a shindig.
Betty still attends the church every week as well as a variety of social and fundraising events.
Her favourite church event is when Robert cooks his famous “rolls and sausage.”
So it was not altogether a surprise when the main course at her 100th party was rolls and sausage.
And the touch added greatly to her big day.
After enjoying her birthday meal and cake, she was presented with a large bouquet of flowers from the young members of the Sunday Groups as well as many birthday cards - of course, one from Her Majesty The Queen.
