On Tuesday, March 1st, 2022, the residents of Hide Tower came together to celebrate three of its longer term residents who'd all reached - and surpassed - their 100th birthdays!
Mr Jack Fisher and Mrs Rose Fisher have lived in Hide Tower for 57 years. Rose has lived in Regency Street all her life, and Jack was a founding member of Hide Tower Resident Management Board.
Miss Winifred Long has been a tenant of Hide Tower since 1969.
Westminster City Council marked these auspicious centenary celebrations by planting a cherry tree with a commemorative plaque in the Hide Tower gardens.
Here are all three together, along with the Lord Mayor of Westminster - Councillor Andrew Smith, and Councillor David Harvey - Westminster City Council's Cabinet Member for Housing Services, local ward councillors, and care staff:
And here's Jack giving us all a speech:
There was a great turnout, and a lovely spread was put on by Hide Tower staff and committee members.
In all, it was such a positive and uplifting event, and we thank all who attended and took part in the organisation of it.
Congratulations Jack, Rose, and Winifred!
