A sherry a day has helped a Wymondham woman reach the sprightly age of 100.
Edith Celena Harriott Backlog, known affectionately as Cissie, reached her century on Tuesday. The grandmother of seven, who also has seven great grandchildren, had lived in Wymondham all her life, until she moved to a care home in Attleborough last year, where she is looked after by her twin daughters Brenda and Elaine, son Geoffrey, daughter-in-law Lily and sons-in-law Mike and Bob.
She also has a sister, Florrie, who is 97.
Cissie celebrated her landmark birthday surrounded by family, and received the customary telegram from the Queen.
