Lily Davidson celebrates her 100th birthday.

A search has started to find guests for a special event this month – a summer party for one hundred 100-year-olds.

The Elderberries Programme is staging the festivities at The Alnwick Garden on Wednesday, July 16, from noon until 3.30pm.

Organisers hope the occasion will be a success and are inviting centurions from around the North East to the celebrations.

Karen Hedley, Elderberries project assistant, said: “This event not only marks the centenary of the First World War, but it also launches our Elderberries’ 100 club.

“We believe everyone should be able to live to 100 years old, and beyond, in the knowledge that they will have a happy, healthy, fulfilled quality of life, free from loneliness and isolation.”

The party will include a two-course meal, drinks (wine, tea/coffee or juice) and entertainment.

Transport is available if required and the whole thing is free of charge. One carer or family member per person will also be welcome if required.

The Elderberries Programme works to address loneliness, isolation and poverty among older people living in Northumberland.

By offering local people access to projects, events, services and opportunities it aims to promote a healthy, fulfilled quality of life.

The programme is supported by the Stuart Halbert Foundation and John Adamson of Ramside Estates.

If you know someone who would enjoy the party, contact Karen Hedley or Lauren Hall, both from The Elderberries Team, on 01665 511376 or 511857.
