Golden moment for our Betty, 100

Much-loved Javea U3A member Betty Guinness was congratulated at the May general meeting by U3A President Val Dromgoole on reaching her 100th birthday – and presented with a special Honorary Membership gold card and a gift of handmade chocolates.

Betty said she was “very honoured”.

“Having lived for 16 years on my own, the U3A has meant so much to me. The many events and activities have kept me going.

“I am always meeting people who stop and say hello to me and when you live on your own it means so much. Thank you for just being you.”
