A Slough woman has welcomed her 100th birthday with a celebration at a local hotel, surrounded by her family and friends.

Lilian Doreen Carr, known as Doreen, was born on February 1, 1923, and grew up in Westbury with her siblings.

She later joined the army at the age of 18 where she was on anti-aircraft duty during the Second World War.

It was during this time that Doreen met her husband Bill Carr, who she married in 1946.

Together they lived in Buxton and later moved to Slough in the late 1940s where the pair had their daughter Patricia Carr, now Patricia Rufus.

Patricia said: "She has been a loving mother, very caring and supportive.

"I suppose the secret to her long life is being content and enjoying life.

"She likes to keep herself busy. She's always been in good health."

Doreen saw in her birthday at Stoke Place Hotel where she was surprised by family and friends for a sit-down champagne and afternoon tea.
