There were centenary celebrations on Wednesday 11 July at the William Wilberforce Care Home in Pocklington.
Ethel Matthews, resident since the home opened in 2013, turned 100! There was a large gathering of friends and family members to mark the day with some flying in from overseas. Ethel’s grand daughter flew in from Ireland and her grandson, who gave a speech, travelled from America.
A spokesman at the care home said: “Ethel received a telegram from the Queen which she opened as all her guests looked on. A happy birthday to Ethel from all of us.”
