Warmest congratulations to Newtownabbey lady Florence Grattan who celebrated her 100th birthday on Thursday May 5th.
Florence was delighted when the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev Alan Abernethy, called to see her at home on her big day. With him were the Rev Bill Boyce, Florence’s rector at St Brigid’s, Mallusk, and fellow parishioner June Edens.
The guests brought Florence greetings and a large bouquet of flowers from all her church family.
Son Dennis said Florence had been delighted by the visit from the Bishop, and family from England and Canada and a surprise guest in the form of a niece all the way from New Zealand had made her birthday a really special occasion.
