A LOCAL lady celebrated a birthday milestone with family at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.

Olive Day turned 100 on Saturday August 6, and enjoyed a special birthday party at the Orangery at Sewerby Hall, with family visiting from Yorkshire, the North East and Jersey.

Olive was also visited by Bridlington Mayor Coun Cyril Marsburg, as well as receiving the customary telegram from the Queen and Iain Duncan Smith, the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions.

Mrs Day has two children, Stuart who lives in Leeds and Sandra, who lives in Tynemouth in the North East as well as four grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.

Olive’s daughter Sandra said: “It was a wonderful day and mum really enjoyed herself.

“She knew she was having a party but she didn’t realise the mayor would go and visit her, or that she would be getting her photograph taken - so it made it a bit more special for her.

“Sewerby Hall was a lovely venue and more than forty people came along for the party.”

Olive was born in Nafferton, moved to Leeds, before coming to stay in Bridlington where she has lived for more than thirty years.
