A VERY happy birthday to Belmont’s Sylvia Berenice Adams who on Wednesday reaches the milestone of 100 years old.
A mother of four, grandmother of six and great-grandmother of 10, Mrs Adams was born in Barnsley to an era far different from that of today.
Relatively spritely for her age, she still actively participates in indoor bowls and bingo, where she has won her fair share of trophies.
Reaching 100 is an achievement in itself but Mrs Adams has been looking forward to receiving her personally signed letter from Queen Elizabeth II.
The royal letter is now proudly on display for all to see.
Mrs Adams will celebrate her birthday in style on more than one occasion this week, with a morning tea on Wednesday along with a large party on Sunday at Marks Point Bowling Club.
