Vera turns 100

31st May 2018 | posted in News

Not drinking or smoking is one of the reasons Vera Buckle thinks has helped her reach the fantastic age of 100.

She celebrated her birthday in April by going out for a meal with her son,family and friends, and admits to breaking her no-alcohol rule on this occasion.

Vera says: “I had a snowball but I left half of it. I have never drunk or smoked. When I married my husband Henry he used to leave two cigarettes for me when he went to work, but they were always still there when he got back!”

Vera is originally from Bedford, but moved to live in one of our homes in Selby around 15 years ago.

She adds: “My son lives just down theroad and I have lots of grandchildren and great-grandchildren who make a fuss of me.”
