Have your say

Enid Dewhurst from Belford celebrated her 100th birthday in style in the village on Saturday.

Around 70 villagers and family had an afternoon gathering in the village’s Ferguson Hall – by kind permission of the Erskine Reformed Church – followed by a family party outside later.

Enid was born shortly before the outbreak of the First World War and lost her father in that conflict.

During the Second World War she would cycle home after work when the clocks were put forward two hours so that people could get home before the bombing started.

“The family would like to thank the Erskine Church Elders, John Dory Fish shop in Belford for supplying 27 fish suppers, Ian Carruthers of Carruthers Leisure for delivering them and Shona Dixon of Belford newsagents for keeping the bubbly chilled.” said a family spokesperson.

“What amazed us was that on her 100th birthday after an afternoon partying, a fish supper and four glasses of wine in the evening she didn’t go home until half past ten!”
