Constance ‘Connie’ Stubbs, a resident of Florence Grogan House care home in Chester, celebrated hitting a century with a birthday party organised by staff at the CLS-run home.
Crowned queen for the day with a special tiara, Connie celebrated her milestone surrounded by staff and residents at the home, where she was presented with gifts from well-wishers, 100 flowers, and a special card from the Queen congratulating her on reaching a century.
Revellers enjoyed an afternoon tea with birthday cake, cupcakes and scones, and the special day was rounded off with Connie’s favourite meal: a fish and chip supper.
Born in Yorkshire, Connie later moved to Northwich where she owned a shop selling scarves and clothing. Connie lived in Chester before she moved to Florence Grogan House last year. When she is not performing royal duties, Connie enjoys listening to music and spending time with Flo and Simon, the pet cats of Florence Grogan House. When asked about the secret to long life, Connie replied: “A good marriage.”
Commenting on Connie’s birthday, Wendy Hope, Home Manager at Florence Grogan House said: “Connie is a wonderful lady who loves a chat and has a great sense of humour. She thoroughly enjoyed her party, and it was a pleasure to help her celebrate such a special milestone.”
