Georgina celebrates 107th birthday at Maiden Castle House

Published: 3rd February 2021

Maiden Castle House care home‘s oldest resident was inundated with cards at the weekend as she celebrated her 107th birthday.

Georgina, who has four children and recently became a great, great grandmother, was also delighted to see her son at the Dorchester care home, who sang happy birthday through the window from the grounds.

When asked what her secret to a long life was, Georgina – as a religious woman – said she “thanks The Lord”. Georgina has spent much of her life helping others, working for The Salvation Army into her 80s. That work included supporting children in a care home.

Born in 1914, Georgina’s long life has seen her live through both world wars, four kings and queens, and 26 different prime ministers.

She has also lived through a number of iconic moments in history, such as women getting the right to vote, the first man on the Moon, the first transatlantic flight, and the invention of the TV.
