Attleborough resident celebrates 104th birthday
When Sybill Seville was born King Edward VII sat on the throne and Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman was leading the country as prime minister.
Things have changed considerably since 1907 when Sybill made her entrance into the world but the Attleborough resident is still going strong at the age of 104.
She celebrated her landmark birthday on August 11 with staff at Brooklyn House care home, where she has lived since 2009.
She also enjoyed a day out with her family to mark the special occasion.
Sybill was born in Easton, just outside Norwich, and worked as a housemaid at Kimberley Hall, near Wymondham, before meeting her husband Herbert, who was working as a gardener.
The couple settled in Attleborough and had one son called Antony.
Brookyln House provides nursing care for up to 40 elderly people as part of the Caring Homes Group.
