Almost 30 family members and friends attended the event, including the Mayor and Mayoress of Wellingborough, Cllrs Graham and Lora Lawman, who brought Lily a silver photograph frame.

During the party she was presented with a birthday cake made by a cook for Shaw Healthcare which included a picture of Lily as a young 21-year-old.

Pat Chandler, Lily’s daughter, said: “I think Mum enjoyed the day, her dementia sometimes makes it hard to know exactly how she is feeling. We wanted to make it a special day for her.”
