PUT your trust in the Almighty, help others, and thank God before you close your eyes at night’ – that is the secret to reaching the grand old age of 106, according to Rose Peters.

Rose, who lives at Elton Lodge in Selden Road, Worthing, was surrounded by her family and friends as she celebrated her birthday on Thursday, September 12.

Guests sat in the care home’s spacious lounge and enjoyed a buffet of party food and cups of tea.

Four of Rose’s 17 nieces and nephews came to the party, sitting down to tea and nibbles with residents of the home where Rose has lived for the past six years.

“We are all one big family,” said Rose.
