IT was a rock and roll entrance for a former dinner lady when she arrived at her 100th birthday party with a police escort.
Teenagers at Sir Thomas Wharton Community College in Edlington laid on a birthday extravaganza to mark Bella Strutt’s special milestone.
They put on a showcase demonstrating the changes of songs and dress over the past century. They also invited about 100 pensioners from the surrounding area.
One of the organisers Robyn Cusworth, 17, said: “It was fabulous. There were performances showing music from different decades. We also had a visit from Chuckle Brother Barry Elliott, who really made everyone laugh.”
A message from Mrs Strutt’s grand-daughter was also beamed to the school from Singapore, where she works as a teacher.
