100 Not Out Nov 25th

Mildred Pink celebrated her 100th birthday with a gathering of friends and family at the Cowplain Social Club.

Among those there to help her to celebrate were her son, David, grandsons Chris and Nick, daughter-in-law, Laura, and her three great-grandsons, Joshua, Harrison and Zachary.

Born and educated in Petersfield, Mildred and her husband, Bill, moved to Cowplain in 1962 and purchased the local SPAR shop in London Road before selling it to Campion’s bakery a few years later. She joined the local WI and, after Bill passed away in 1981, became very involved in Age Concern at the Borrow Day Centre, where she was active until early in 2011.

Now living in a local care home, Mildred is a very youthful looking centenarian.
