Chatteris resident Pearl Brown celebrates her 100th birthday today (Wednesday, November 13).
The centenarian will be marking her very special day with a buffet for family and friends in her room at the town’s Swan House nursing and residential home.
Pearl’s husband Cyril died at the age of 80 and she said he was a champion runner from Cambridge.
Pearl has a son, Michael, who lives at Needingworth.
Born at Warboys, Pearl moved to Chatteris when Michael was two-and-a-half years-old and up until recently, she was living at home. She moved to Swan House around four months ago where staff have described her as an “absolute joy”.
Pearl likes her daily apple juice and liberal sprinklings of vinegar on her food.
She likes watching television and her favourite programmes are game shows and Australian soap operas.
