A great-great-grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday at a county building which will also be marking its centenary this year.
Olive Richardson of Rushden enjoyed a tea party with friends and family at The Picturedrome, Northampton, on Monday.
The venue was chosen because The Picturedrome, which used to be a cinema but was converted into a pub 13 years ago, was built in 1912.
Mrs Richardson’s granddaughter Debbie Tite found it on the internet as the perfect place for a party.
She was joined by members of her family including her 96-year-old sister Win Lee. The centenarian was married for more than 50 years to former bus driver Eric Richardson, who died in 1986. Mrs Richardson still lives independently.
She said: “I think I’ve been lucky really as I haven’t had many health problems.”
Mrs Richardson has two children and nine grandchildren as well as numerous great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Mrs Richardson was born in Bedfordshire but has spent the majority of her life living in Rushden.
