Special day as villager reaches 100
A WOOLMER Green nursing home resident celebrated her 100th birthday this week.
Dorothy Hutchins, who lives at Monread Lodge Nursing & Residential Home, received her card from the Queen on Friday.
She celebrated the milestone with friends and family – one of which travelled across the globe to attend the day.
Dorothy, who lived in Stevenage for 98 years and has two nephews, told the WHT: “I don’t feel 100, I still feel 70 so that’s the age I’m going to stay!
“I am very touched by the cards and birthday wishes from both my friends and family.
