ANNE Eddleston, a much loved resident of Crediton’s Hillbrow Care Home, recently celebrated her 100th birthday.

She shared her birthday with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee so the residents of Hillbrow had a double reason to celebrate at their recent garden party.

Anne was born in London in 1922 and worked as a bank teller before the war.

During the war, she served as a morse code operator in Egypt.

She married Bill in 1946 and together they had three children, six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

The family moved to Yorkshire for 10 years before moving back to London.

Anne moved to Hillbrow Care Home in 2014 and really enjoyed the town, the shops and was an active member of Crediton Congregational Church.

All the residents and staff of Hillbrow wished Anne a very happy birthday.
