It was great to be invited to Liz Short's 100 birthday party held at Bootle Cricket Club. Liz had five generations of her family present. My job was to present her with the telegram from the Queen and to join in the singing of Happy Birthday
Paul Newbery presented Liz with a bottle of Champagne on behalf of the Firwood Bootle Cricket Club who hosted the event. Everyone I spoke to was very impressed with the club and the care it had taken over this event
Liz lives at the Willow Gardens, St Edmonds Rd, Bootle and other residents and staff had joined her family in celebrating her birthday.
