Wenlock residents triple century

South Shropshire MP Philip Dunne recently met three centenarians from Much Wenlock to celebrate their incredible lives.

Mr Dunne and Cllr David Turner had tea with Dolly Gordon, 101, Sarah Waterer, 104 and Florence Chadd, 108. All three ladies are residents at the town’s Lady Forester Nursing Home, having been born within 30 miles of Much Wenlock and lived in the town for over 70 years.

Mr Dunne says, “It was great to have the opportunity to have tea with these three brilliant ladies and to celebrate their extraordinary longevity!

Given the centenary earlier this year, it’s remarkable to think each of these women was born before women had the vote, and how our society has changed over the past century – not least the improvements in treating health conditions, allowing us all to live longer, healthier lives.”
