A Welsh woman celebrated her 100th birthday this week and spent her special day doing some of her favourite things with some of her favourite people. Violet Rowe has been a regular at Rossi’s fish and chip shop in Swansea for the last 20 years, and staff at the shop celebrated the day with their favourite customer by putting on a special spread of her chip shop favourites.
The great-grandmother regularly visits Rossi’s fish and chip shop, sometimes up to four times in one week, and her friendly face gets the staff ready to rush out and greet her whenever she arrives. Roxanne Thompson, supervisor at Rossi’s, describes the centenarian as “funny” and “up for a bit of a giggle”, and they are always up for a friendly chat before Violet heads back home to enjoy her fish and chips in riser recliner chairs with her family.
As a special surprise for her birthday, the staff at Rossi’s laid out a spread of her favourites for her and her family to enjoy, including pies, fish, mushy peas and plenty of chips.
