Family and friends – and a few drinks – gave Ena Naylor a 100th birthday to remember.

Mrs Naylor was joined by around 35 guests on New Year’s Eve, including South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes, for an all-day party at Stondehaven Residential Home in Quadring, where she has lived for the past five years.

She is the home’s oldest resident, but owner Michael Penfold described her as the fittest and said: “She’s still going strong.

“She thoroughly enjoyed her birthday party, and kept going all day, enjoying a glass or two of Champagne, sherry and wine along the way.

“She’s very sprightly for her age, she often joins me to walk the dogs in the summer and I think she’ll be around for a good few years yet.”

Mrs Naylor never had children as her husband was killed in the war on his very first mission with Bomber Command, but is in close contact with nephews and nieces.
