Holbeach Hospital resident Alice Howe has celebrated her 103rd birthday.

Alice lived most of her life in the Coventry area before moving to Long Sutton to be closer to her family in 2003. She worked in industry and retired at the age of 70. She enjoyed a happy 58 years of marriage before her husband passed away.

Alice has lived through both World Wars and has vivid memories of the Blitz, as Coventry was heavily bombed.

Alice lived completely independently on her own until September of this year and still maintains her independence and is enjoying her time at the hospital.

She celebrated her 103rd birthday with cakes and balloons, surrounded by family, friends and staff. Alice puts down her long life to taking everything in moderation.
