FAIRFIELD House in Lyme Regis went all out for the 100th birthday of its resident Trudy Jillians.
Town crier Alan Vian attended the party to give a special cry about Trudy and 1940s singers The Liberty Sisters, from Exeter, sang ‘Happy Birthday’.
Trudy’s birthday card from the Queen was delivered by hand by an impersonator of Her Majesty, and a cake was presented decorated with a photo of Trudy and her son Derek as a baby.
Born in Slough as one of nine siblings, Trudy lived in Windsor for many years before moving to Lyme Regis. She worked in a ribbon factory before marrying husband Fred and having daughter Barbara.
During the Second World War, Trudy took in evacuees from London and, after the war, she worked for John Lewis and had second child Derek.
Trudy moved to Fairfield House only a few months ago and enjoys word games, yoga and many of the activities at the residential care home.
