Chair, Jim Wakem, presents Dorothy Moore with some flowers to celebrate her 100th birthday

The Parish Council were delighted to present Dorothy Moore from the Rising Sun are of Harrowbarrow with some flowers to celebrate her 100th birthday on Friday 1st September 2023.

Dorothy has lived in Rising Sun since 1974 with her husband Dennis.  Dennis and Dorothy were married 56 years ago.

Dorothy was born in Plymouth on 1st September 1923 and was raised in Saltash passage  as  a child. During the war she worked in the forces as an Officer Steward at Wembury, just on the coast outside of Plymouth. Dorothy used to enjoy painting and drawing up until about 5 years ago when due to sight loss she could no longer see to paint.

To celebrate Dorothy’s 100th birthday some neighbours and relatives gathered together and held a party at her house. Sadly Dorothy outlived her both her sons but has a grandson and 2 great grandchildren who live in Ivybridge.
