A 100-year-old from Malvern was pleased as punch to receive a card from the Queen congratulating her on her milestone birthday.

The special royal greeting took pride of place among Marjorie West’s collection of cards and balloons as she celebrated her 100th birthday at Mowbray Nursing Home in Victoria Road, Malvern, last Wednesday.

Mrs West enjoyed visits from friends in the morning before staff presented her with a cake and a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ later on in the day.

Mrs West has only been at the home for a few months but has already endeared herself to staff, with acting manager Hita Patel, describing her as “quite the character”.

Mrs West grew up in London but moved to Malvern many years ago when her late husband Wally came to work at the Royal Radar Establishment (RRE). In her younger days Mrs West was also a keen billiards player and she has always loved the great outdoors – staff saying she took great delight in a snowman built outside her window during the recent wintry weather.
