Three local residents have celebrated their 90th birthdays in the same week.

Beryl Fox, living in Woburn Drive in Hale, is the eldest of the trio, and celebrated her birthday on Saturday, September 21.

Originally from Middlesex, Beryl came to Cheshire with her late husband, Roy Fox, in 1960.

Beryl attended the London College of Music as a piano player in her youth, and has always been an avid reader.

Along with raising her three children, Beryl also worked for over a decade at Altrincham Football Club as a secretary to Commercial Manager, Derek Kennerly.

Philip Webster, of Frammingham Avenue in Sale, started his celebrations early with a big party at Ringway Golf Club last Saturday.

Despite his use of a wheelchair, Philip was spotted boogying away on the dance floor.

Philip, born in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, worked in sales for chocolate maker, Terry’s, before moving to the area in 1960 with his late wife, Chris, to raise their three children.

One of Philip’s favourite pastimes is golf. He was a member of Chorlton Golf Club, where he enjoyed both the sporting and social side of the activity.

His friends say he was particularly fond of the ‘19th hole’ where he would reward himself with his favourite tipple, a Teacher’s whiskey.

He enjoyed many golfing trips with his son.

Last but not least, Peter Barber will be joining the celebrations tomorrow, September 27.

Peter worked in his family’s newsagents and tobacconist business, ‘H. Barber & Sons’ of Broadheath, started by his grandmother Lucy Barber in 1886. He dedicated most of his time to the business until he retired at 65.

As a fan of snooker, Peter was a member at Mobberly Victory Hall for many years.

Peter and his wife, 89-year-old Barbara, now live in Goostrey, but spent most of their married life in Timperley and Hale where they raised their three daughters.

Coincidentally, Peter and Beryl are part of the same extended family, after their eldest children, Diane and Chris, married and had three daughters.
