Mackworth centenarian celebrates 105th birthday
A great-great-Grandad from Derbyshire has been celebrating his 105th birthday with friends and family at his retirement living service.
The centenarian was born in Brailsford in 1914 and lived there for most of his life. He was the eldest of seven brothers and worked on a farm in his younger days, before taking employment as a night porter and a firefighter.
George, who has lived at Sanctuary Retirement Living’s Greenwich Gardens since he was 99, describes some of his favourite hobbies as ballroom dancing, tennis and going on holiday.
