Can you help make Royston resident Mary’s 100th (lockdown) birthday a special one? We’re looking for as many birthday cards as we can muster! This birthday means the world to her and it’s going to be profoundly affected by current restrictions.
Near life long Roystonian Mrs Mary Taylor is due to celebrate her 100th birthday at the beginning of April.
Mary is just the most amazing and special lady, and up until just a year or so ago, had been an active member of the local church, women’s institute for over 50 years, luncheon club, local walking and national trust groups to name but a few. She remains a keen supporter of various local charities. Mary has served her country, county and town diligently over her lifetime, being a proud member of the WAAF during WW2 and serving Hertfordshire County Council for
many years at Balls Park and other locations, until taking up a role as librarian in Royston. More recently she rather surprisingly took up playing the Ukelele at 93 and has played as part of a wonderful local ukelele group to many local Royston groups and care homes over the past several years.
Mary is sadly no longer able to be out and about on her daily treks with her shopping basket to the market, or the local shops that she most vehemently defended and supported in the face of chain competitors. She truly loves Royston and its people. She is now cared for at home due to infirmity and is relatively isolated due to Covid. Her family would love for her to feel the love of the community that she has treasured and served for so many years on her 100th birthday.
For safeguarding reasons I’m sure you will understand we are unable to publish her address, however, a wonderful friend of the family has kindly stepped up to assist with her commercial postal address and will manage the collection of the cards.
