A well known Northfield woman has celebrated her 105th birthday today, with a party at her home – and yet another card from the Queen! 

Nell Reid was born in 1912. The oldest of 8 children, Nell lived with her family in a back-to-back home in Nechells.

Her family moved to Northfield when she was 15 and Nell now lives in Ash Grove, a Riverside Group sheltered housing scheme in the centre of Northfield.

Manager Mark Sturgeon said Nell is amazing, is still fit and active and often seen in the town centre.

Nell is well known on the high street and she still likes to stroll around the shops and pop into Northfield Baptist Church for a cuppa and a chat.

Many thanks to Rev Dave Tubby for chatting to Nell for us and asking her some VERY important questions…..

Like, what’s the secret of long life, what she likes about Northfield and if she believes in Father Christmas!

Happy Birthday, Nell, you’re amazing! We’re looking forward to next year’s birthday party….! :D
