A “remarkable” woman who was born during the height of the First World War has celebrated her 103rd birthday in style with a cake at the care home where she lives.
Annie Nicholls was born in Potter Heigham in 1917.
During her lifetime she has survived tuberculosis and two world wars, worked as a nurse and a midwife and been an active member of the church.
Today, she lives at Thomas Tawell House, Vision Norfolk’s care home for people with visual impairment in Norwich, where she celebrated her 103rd birthday earlier this month.
Visitors are currently not permitted at the care home as a precaution during the coronavirus pandemic, but staff ensured Mrs Nicholls’ birthday did not go unmarked by making her a cake.
