A CLACTON care home helped two golden oldies celebrate spectacular milestones in style.

Corner House Care Home held a pair of parties as residents Eileen Fever and Ena Potter celebrated their birthdays.

Ena received her card from the Queen as she turned 100, while evergreen Eileen reached the grand age of 102.

After growing up in Devon, Ena moved to Ilford to marry her sweetheart Albert.

She served her country during the Second World War, spending four years in the Army carrying out various roles.

Ena and Albert eventually moved into Corner House together until he died last year.

Former nurse Eileen grew up in Kent and moved into the Clacton care home in 2005.

She is described by her family as a community stalwart who did everything she could to get involved and help people.

Staff at Corner House say she is still going strong at 102.

Senior carer Joanne Exell said: “Eileen is a bit feisty. She knows exactly what she wants and gives us a bit of a run for our money. She does wonderfully for 102. We should all hope to do so well.

"Ena is much quieter, but both ladies had a great time celebrating their birthdays. It’s a pleasure to have them both here.”
