A man from Sheffield celebrated his 100th birthday last week, and having been a familiar face on the club scene for many years of his life, Joseph Trigg’s birthday party was the best party in town. Starting the day off looking his best with a soak in walk in baths and special birthday T-shirt, the home where he has spent many happy years was packed full of friends and family to celebrate the big day.
Jospeh made a name for himself as a performer in venues across Sheffield, singing and dancing his way into the hearts of club-goers everywhere with his rendition of the Woody Woodpecker song. To commemorate his successful career, his family organised for an entertainer to come along and perform some of the great tunes that Joseph would have sung during his time on the stages of Sheffield.

Valentine’s Day makes 14 February a special day for many people, but it was even more special for one Wokingham woman. Dorine Thomson was surrounded by family and friends this Valentine’s Day as a special party was organised for the celebration of her 100th birthday.

She has been a fan of dancing and performing ever since she was a child and has spent many years performing in the theatre, so plenty of lively singing and fun games were organised for her birthday. Although she now lives in a care home, she is surrounded by other residents who have been stars of the small and silver screen, so she feels right at home with so many like-minded people.
