How many of us can say that during our life time we’ve known 4 Monarchs, 24 Prime Ministers, 9 Archbishops and the creation of 100 Sovereign States? Well, Elaine Delliere of Moorlands Lodge in Hindhead can!
Elaine celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday to much fanfare. Elaine’s family were joined by the whole community who turned out to celebrate this remarkable milestone. Whilst fashion changes and tastes change, lemon curd and Victoria sponge has stood the test of time and featured heavily during the celebrations on Saturday 12 May. Malcolm Carter our local Mayor of Haslemere and Christian Ashdown, Haslemere Town Crier, dropped by to deliver that all important card from Her Majesty the Queen and to wish Elaine a very happy birthday.
Elaine spent a lot of her life living in Purley, South London where she married Robert at the age of 23 and was married for 73 years. Elaine brought up her son John and two daughters, Susan and Nina. Later in life she moved to Haslemere. Elaine likes to spend her days in the Moorlands gardening, painting, needlework, has recently attended sculpture classes and is a keen member of the Moorlands Creative Writing Group.
