A 100-YEAR-OLD woman has revealed the secrets of her long life –sensible diet and a good night’s sleep.

Centenarian, Margaret Sharp celebrated the milestone on Sunday, March 20, surrounded by family, friends and staff at Sanctuary Care’s Caton House Care Home in Bletchley.

She was also sent a special card from the Queen to commemorate the occasion.

Margaret, who has lived through two World Wars, said: “I can’t quite believe that I’ve made it to 100. I had a lovely birthday and I would like to thank everyone who made it so special. To receive a card from the Queen was very exciting.”

And giving advice on her long life, Margaret said: “Be honest, friendly and help others. And if you want to live to 100, eat well, go for a walk every day and make sure you get a good night’s sleep.”

Manager of Caton House, Donna Stewart, said: “Margaret is a lovely lady and a pleasure to have around. She is a quiet person who still does most things for herself and enjoys the garden, nature programmes and reading.”
