Have your say

A resident at a Pinchbeck care home is the latest person in South Holland to celebrate a landmark birthday.

Mrs Ivy Carter has been celebrating her 102nd birthday at Brun Lea Care Home.

She was joined by family and friends as well as members of staff, who said she had a lovely day.

Lauren Taylor, the home’s activity co-ordinator, said Ivy told her she has had a good long life.

Ivy enjoyed school, especially skipping, which she won prizes for, a good loving family, drinking plenty of water (never tea!) and great holidays in Yarmouth with family,

Now she enjoys looking at the “realistic-looking animals” the home has outside the windows and having a chat with people.

At 102, she feels good and well in herself.

We wish her a very happy birthday!
