A WOMAN known for her celebrated cooking has enjoyed turning 100-years-old.
Sarah Timson, known as Sally, was born months before the outbreak of the First World War and has now celebrated her landmark birthday.
She marked the day with the chairman of Flintshire County Council, Cllr Carolyn Thomas, visiting her home in Garden City, Sealand.
Mrs Timson was born in Nottinghamshire, growing up in a farming community. She married husband Tim in 1936 , during the Second World War working for Bees Nurseries in Liverpool and Sealand.
They were also in charge of the seed propagation programme for the Ministry of Agriculture as part of the war effort. Mr and Mrs Timson took over the tenancy of the Stags Head pub in Newport, Lincoln, where they stayed for 21 years.
After her husband died, Mrs Timson moved to Garden City to be closer to her family.
Her cooking is well-known, particularly her cakes and jams. She enjoys shopping, weekly trips to the hairdressers and going out for lunch in the countryside.
Cllr Thomas said: “Sally is a truly inspirational, smart and intelligent lady.
“It is hard to believe she is 100 years old. It was an absolute delight to spend time with Sally and her family and I felt honoured to be invited.”
