(UK) Mary (Mollie) Walker 05/02/1909 - 112th birthday

Mary (Mollie) Walker of Kingwood, Oxfordshire, England, UK celebrated her 112th birthday on 05/02/2021. She was born in Pencoedtre, Glamorgan, Wales, UK on 05/02/1909.

Mrs Mollie Walker, MBE, was born in February 1909. She and her husband moved to the village in 1932 and since 1937 she has lived in the same house that she and her husband built. Mrs Walker has had her vaccination against Covid and remains in generally good health, being supported by daily visits from her daughter and her son who visits weekly. Until March last year Mrs Walker accompanied her daughter on weekly supermarket shopping trips which she has missed since the first lockdown. These outings gave her regular exercise which helped her maintain good mobility but, despite that, she can still walk with a frame and get up the stairs to bed. Mrs Walker has always had the company of a dog and her daughter now walks her loyal collie. Mrs Walker is very proud of all her birthday cards from the Queen. The first arrived on her 100th birthday and, having received one every year since her 105th birthday, she now has a considerable collection which her daughter displays for her on her birthday every year. This year Mrs Walker received over thirty cards from well-wishers as well as balloons, lots of flower arrangements and drawings from the children at Sonning Common Primary School. Her special request for her birthday this year was strawberries and cream which she thoroughly enjoyed after a good meal. The village has much to be thankful to Mrs Walker for since, along with a friend, she was successful in preventing a council housing estate being built on Kingwood Common under the Nettlebed and District Commons (Preservation) Act 1906 which banned building on the commons. I am sure everyone in the village joins the Peppard News Editorial Team in sending belated good wishes to Mrs Walker on her birthday.
