Fenland villagers turned out today (Friday) to wish one of their residents a very special birthday.

Social distancing on the green outside Wilfred Thompson's home on the Manor Estate dozens of people of all ages lined up to sing happy birthday to him, as he celebrated his 100th birthday.

Local children were encouraged to make Wilf, who was groundsman for both Doddington Football Club and Wimblington Cricket Team, a birthday card, and to put them in a special box so they could be safely handed to him on his special day.
