A CUPPA could be the secret to a long life, said Charlotte Twells as she reached her 105th birthday.
“I love tea and I have three spoonfuls of sugar in every one,” she said. “I have at least eight cups a day.”
Charlotte celebrated her latest birthday with a party at a Paddock Hill residential home in Gleadless Road where she has lived for two years since moving from Base Green.
Schoolchildren sang for her – and naturally there was a cup of her favourite brew.
Staff at Paddock Hill say she is still one of their biggest characters, who loves meeting people, and is called Miss Whistle for her happy whistling.
