Mabel Smith celebrated her 100th birthday with a party for family and friends at Ashwood Care Home in Spalding Common last Thursday. Mabel, who was part of a large Sheffield family, moved to the area when she went into service. She was joined on her special day by daughter and son-in-law June and Ken Smith and their son Dale. She previously worked at the Smedleys factory and moved into the care home a year ago. Her husband passed away ten years ago but she still has a twin brother and sister, Alf and Ada, who are 95.
