Originally from Stoke-on-Trent, Winifred moved to Stratford when she was 83.

On Saturday staff at the care home decorated an outdoor visiting pod with balloons, cards and bunting so members of her family could pass on their best birthday wishes.

Winifred was also delighted to get a birthday card from the Queen.

To help celebrate her special day relatives and family recorded video messages from all over the UK and Crete, where her neice lives.

Her son Kevin, said of his mum: “Winifred came from a humble farming background and has a strong work ethos. She enjoyed dancing and badminton.”
