Family and friends helped Harrogate woman Mrs Mabel Dulcie Wells celebrate her 100th birthday on August 14.

Known as Dulcie, Mrs Wells enjoyed her day with guests as well as receiving many cards and a number of bouquets of flowers to celebrate her centenary.

And she received a card from HRH Queen Elizabeth II, much to her delight.

Mrs Wells has lived at Abbeyfield Harrogate Society, on Otley Road, Harrogate, for the last 20 years and worked as a doctors secretary before becoming a farmers’ wife.

A spokesman for the society said: “She was joined by fellow residents, staff and family for a sherry before going in to lunch where everyone enjoyed sharing in the celebrations with Mrs Wells on her very special birthday.”

She has two daughters aged 70 and 68, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Her secret to long life is working hard and she greatly enjoyed playing golf in her free time.
