MISS Doris Symons, born at Knowle, has lived and worked in Crediton all her life, apart from a wartime posting in Cheltenham.

She recently celebrated her 100th birthday with her family.

Doris worked for many years at Jackson’s factory in Crediton and latterly at Queen Elizabeth’s School assisting the matron at the boys boarding house.

She has always been an active member of the Gospel Hall having served as a Sunday School teacher. More recently she has worshiped at Bow Gospel Hall.

Her love of her precious golden retrievers and cats is reflected in her selfless wish to receive no presents, instead she asked for donations for her chosen charities.

A total of £270 was raised and will be shared equally between the RSPCA and Echos Missionaries.

A further party was held with her highly valued friends from the Gospel Hall, acknowledging her wonderful achievement.
