It was a real honour to spend time with Kingsdown resident Jim Miller as he celebrated his 100th birthday.
Jim was on great form, happy at home surrounded by cards and good wishes. In pride of place, that very special card from the Queen, as well as a stunning cake paying tribute to his service as a soldier and his time as a Prisoner of War in Crete during the Second World War when only 19 years old.
Jim’s generation know that while we are going through strange and difficult times, as a country we have endured worse. If we come together and look out for each other, as I have seen so much of in our community already, I know that we will emerge stronger than ever before.
So a very happy birthday to a special person, centenarian Jim Miller!
