Fancy frocks, flowers and fizz were the order of the day at a very special garden party held last Friday in celebration of Peebles Nursing Home resident Betty Morris’s 100th birthday.

Dozens of guests gathered at Craw Wood care home in Tweedbank to raise a glass to Betty on her milestone day.

Gerald Maitland-Carew, Lord-Lieutenant of Roxburgh, Ettrick and Lauderdale also attended the afternoon celebrations to present Betty with her majesty’s birthday message.

Speaking of her milestone achievement, Betty said that she “still felt like a teenager” and attributed living 100 years to having an ever-positive outlook on life, lots of sport and a glass of sherry every day.

She added: “The secret, really, is just enjoying life.”
