Anne Butterworth on her 90th Birthday

Anne Butterworth celebrates her 95th Birthday

The year is 1922. King George V is on the throne. David Lloyd George is Prime Minister. Halifax Town won the FA Cup. HMS Victory is permanently dry docked at Portsmouth. The British Empire is at its largest extent covering a quarter of the world and ruling one in four people on earth. It is the year that Anne Butterworth was born. Anne is a past President of Christleton Women's Institute so it was a delight for me to accompany Dorothy when she visited Anne at home to give her a potted azalea plant and birthday cards from Christleton WI with good wishes for her 95th birthday on 24th April. Anne is now an Honorary Member of Christleton WI and below you can see her on the Queen's Silver Jubilee stand at Christleton Fete in 1977.
