A family party with champagne and cake are amongst the highlights of Lesley Randall’s special day

A PASSION for golf – and chocolate – are the recipe for a long life, according to Seaton’s newest 100-year-old.

Lesley Randall celebrated her special birthday with family and friends at Netherhayes Residential Home, yesterday (Wednesday).

A card from The Queen, a glass of champagne and a performance by local singing duo Pete and Maxine were amongst the highlights of her special day.

And a slice of her favourite chocolate cake – made by cooks Donna Anning and Debbie Chown - also proved a big hit.

Mrs Randall lived in Colyford for some 40 years after retiring there from the Midlands with her late husband John. She has been a resident at Netherhayes since June.

A keen sportswoman in her younger days, she was an accomplished golfer, playing regular at the club in Honiton for many years.

Daughter Caroll Woodman said her mum had always been a very athletic lady despite her great love for chocolate.

“She’s very keen on that,” she said.
