In the morning Kiity was joined at Primrose Lodge by close family for a continental breakfast where she began her celebrations by opening presents and cards. In the afternoon she was whisked off in a beautiful vintage car to a surprise birthday party organised by friends and family.

Kitty, who we still believe isn't a day over 60, received a card from Her Majesty the Queen and also seems set to be a local celebrity as details of the wonderful celebrations will be reported on in the Bournemouth Echo later this week.

We would like to thank Kitty's loved ones as well as staff at Primrose Lodge for their help in making the day so special. To see more photographs of the birthday girl visit our Facebook page here.
