A resident in a Rushden care home is celebrating her 105th birthday today, Thursday.

Ivy Tate, who was born in 1908 in Podington, lives at Beeches Care Home and will be having a special birthday tea with her family.

Mrs Tate was married twice and worked at the Co-op in Rushden for about 50 years before caring for an elderly couple.

She puts her longevity down to “hard work and worry, and a glass of wine every day”.
