A long-time resident of Rugby, Vera Harvey, enjoyed an intimate, family celebration of her 105th birthday on July 24.

It was arranged bythe manager and staff of Kilsby House Residential Home in Kilsby, where Vera has lived for the past five years or so.

Vera was delighted that her son John, his wife Frances and their extended family could travel from Essex to be with her for what turned out to be a joyous occasion, topped off by the delivery of a birthday card from the Queen.

“Vera is a very warm and welcoming character, and an inspiration to us all,” said Tracy Bax, manager of Kilsby House.
