Amy Scriven celebrates her 100th birthday with daughter Pauline Jennings

Amy Scriven celebrated her 100th birthday with family and staff at St Audrey’s residential care home in Old Hatfield, armed with a bouquet of flowers and her official card from the Queen.

Amy was born Amy Clowes, in Kings Cross on February 8, 1911. She married Tom Scriven in September 1933, and had two children – daughter Pauline and son Kenneth.

During World War Two she delivered milk to nearby properties, even dropping off a few pints at Holloway Prison on one occasion.

Proud daughter Pauline, now 73, said: “Amy has always had a positive outlook, and a very caring disposition.

“She’s got a great sense of humour, and she’s very strong willed. She’s just a great mum and a one in a million person.”
