Sherborne House resident Ivy Platt celebrated her 102nd birthday on Saturday (24th June). Family and friends joined in the fun with a birthday cake, flowers and balloons. Originally from London, Ivy lived in Bridport before moving to Sherborne House in Yeovil 18 months ago.
Ivy has a daughter and two granddaughters. She loves to spend her time knitting and has created many of her own outfits. When asked what her secret to a long life is she replied; ‘Chocolate, lots and lots of dark chocolate’.
Staff and residents were delighted to be part of Ivy’s big day.
