a VERY special birthday for a very special woman was celebrated by the civic mayor, friends and family.

Margery Ricketts marked turning 100 with a party at Charles Court residential home in Armthorpe, where she has lived since 2007.

Civic mayor, Coun Ken Knight, joined in the party to mark Margery’s big day.

Margery, originally from Manchester, came to Doncaster when she was ten.

She moved to Leeds to work as a parlour maid at Roundhay Park and returned to Doncaster when she was 71, living in The Laurels, Thorne.
