Ruth’s 103rd Birthday Party

Ruth and JennyCatriona reports on a 103rd Birthday party:

“It’s not every day you get invited to a 103rd birthday party.  So it was quite a treat for a few of us from St John’s to join Ruth Spalton, and some of her relatives for her birthday lunch last Tuesday (3rd).

“Ruth lives in Bryony House in Selly Oak (where incidentally another resident will celebrate her 103rd birthday next month).
