CHESHIRE bakery Chatwins helped a pensioner who had been coming into the store for more than 80 years celebrate her 100th birthday.

Chatwins of Nantwich offered Sarah Darlington a bouquet of flowers and a cake to mark the occasion. Mrs Darlington had been coming into the bakery once a week for the past 83 years for a meat and potato pie and a coffee.

Her daughter Alice Baston said: “Chatwins is the best bakery. We’ve not found anywhere else that comes up to its standards. The staff are really friendly. My mum loves the pies and thinks they’re good value for money. They do nice cakes and custards too.”

Chairman Edward Chatwin commented: “It’s a fabulous occasion to celebrate. She’s been coming to Chatwins for 83 years and we are very proud to have her as a customer.”
