Florence Hilsdon, who is a resident at Poppyfields in Eynesbury, was joined by more than 100 guests for a family party on Sunday, which included a live band and St Neots town crier Mike Blackburn.Florence, who has three children, six grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, said: I love my food, I still have two lumps of sugar in my tea and I love cream cakes and sweets and chocolates and I have never been on a diet. She was born in Luton and worked in the towns famous hat industry after leaving school and came to Poppyfields, which is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, last July. She is the first person at Poppyfields to celebrate their 100th birthday. Florence, who was one of eight children and was sickly as a child, said she couldnt believe she had reached 100. I was the smallest of the babies and they gave me cod liver oil to get the weight on - I have outlived my brothers and sisters. Now, all I take is two blood pressure tablets each day. I get up early every day and I love watching the darts, football and snooker on the television. She said her party was really beautiful and it was lovely to see everyone so happy.
