Huge congratulations to our resident Hilda Hurd who turned 103 on Thursday 28 April. To celebrate a singer came to the house to entertain the ladies and a special birthday buffet lunch was served.

Born Hilda Rushby in 1913, Hilda grew up in Lincoln Street, Hull, with her two sisters and three brothers.

Hilda worked as a cook at Hymers College for 20 years before moving on to work at the University of Hull.

In her free time Hilda enjoyed gardening and reading. She was married to her husband Stan for 50 years and together they enjoyed many holidays abroad and caravanning in the UK.

Happy birthday Hilda!
