There was a double celebration at Walton House on Carlyle Road in South Ealing last Thursday (27th February).

Violet Oliver, a former trade union official, reached the fabulous age of 100 and enjoyed her special party with 20 residents, families and friends and invited guest Cllr David Millican.

Councillor Millican said: '' I’ve met Violet many times and she always has a good story to tell about her interesting life.  She worked as a cook for BT, when they had offices in Ealing, and was a trade union official.  I wish her well."

Violet enjoyed the event and there was a surprise for her good friend and neighbour, Jack Sturgeon.

Mr Sturgeon was presented with the Royal Marines Commandos medal from Cllr David Millican, for services during WWII from 1940-1946.

This was a surprise arranged by Walton House Residents Association (WHRA) and Jack’s family, which took place after Violet’s Birthday celebration.

WHRA say it was a truly memorable, emotional and unique event in the calendar for everyone to remember and they thank everyone who took part and made it a success.
