FOUR generations of the same family gathered at Chapel-en-le-Frith Cricket Club last weekend to mark a local resident’s very special century!

Nellie Christie celebrated her 100th birthday on Sunday.

Born in Failsworth on September 9, 1912, Nellie spent her childhood in Manchester before marrying Harold, her childhood sweetheart.

Nellie moved to Chapel-en-le-Frith 40 years ago, during which time she has been a member of Chapel-en-le-Frith Methodist Church.

Her family in Chapel-en-le-Frith spans four generations and, along with friends, they joined Nellie for a party at the cricket club on Sunday afternoon.
