A Chatteris woman has notched a milestone birthday by celebrating with her family and friends at a local care home.

Kath Rhodes, who has been at The Gables for the past five years celebrated her 101st birthday and she was joined by her daughter Linda and grandson Martin among others.

The most important of whom was Kath's son Tony, who she had not seen since the start of the pandemic. He went along with his partner Lesley to surprise his mum on her special day.

the afternoon culminated in enjoying a slice of cake made specially by the home's chef Heath and reflected her love of trips to the seasid.

Kath is well known for her risqué comments particularly when the male entertainers are visiting the home – well the good looking ones

anyway.

Making every moment count living life to the full Kath takes part in everything offered at the Gables, exercises classes, yoga, bingo,

crafts, cake making and being part of the shows that the staff put on for the residents.

But her biggest love is the sun as soon as it shines Kath rounds up the staff and residents and outside they go to the garden for a relaxing afternoon full of chat and laughter and of

course an ice cream.

Kath has a very wicked sense of humour and puts her longevity down to always having a laugh in her words “it’s no good being miserable”.
