Festive celebrations continued for one woman who was celebrating her 104th birthday.
Betty Leete was celebrating the milestone age yesterday (Friday) with friends and family at the Westbourne Residential Care Home in Hitchin.
Betty, who was born in Goring, Sussex but moved to Royston in her late teens worked in a garage where she met her husband Willam Arthur, also known as Les.
