Glamorous Worcester Park grandmother celebrates 101st birthday

This Is Local London: Nancy Weston with her family Nancy Weston with her family

A much-loved grandmother celebrated her 101st birthday.

Despite her grand old age Nancy Weston, from Worcester Park, sees the hairdresser regularly, goes to bingo each week and always makes sure she always looks her finest.

Manager of Nancy's home Maria Beasley shares a drink with her

Mrs Weston has been a regular feature in the Sutton Guardian since her 99th birthday when she was dubbed Sutton’s oldest drinker as she was partial to a glass of sherry.

Her 100th year has been a challenge after she lost her only son Brian who she called ‘her prince’ because he was born in a castle during the evacuation in the Second World War.

Her daughter Kim Dickerson said: “She continues to give happiness and love to all her family, five daughters, 13 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren and knows the birthdays of all. She never misses a single one.”

Congratulations Mrs Weston. Who would have thought that the secret of a long and happy life would be a glass of sherry, a game of bingo and a visit to the hairdressers? .

Hairdressers is one thing Worcester Park isn't short of, and the other two are easily accessible in these parts, so hopefully we can all look forward to long and happy lifespans?
