TWO friends at Whetstone Hey Residential Home in Great Sutton both enjoyed landmark birthdays during the festive period.

Molly Duckett turned 101 five days before Christmas, while her pal May Fick celebrated her 102nd birthday on Christmas Eve.

Born in Liverpool, grandmother Mrs Duckett lived in Bromborough for 30 years before moving to Little Sutton, which was her home for 40 years.

Great-grandmother Mrs Fick was also from Liverpool and the eldest of seven children. She worked on the buses and in an ammunition factory during the Second World War.
