Lily, who is one of five members of her family that used to work at Rowntree’s, celebrated in style with family, friends and staff at New Lodge.  

Chris Simpson dropped by to wish Lily a happy birthday as well as children from New Earswick Primary School who came to visit. The children gave her a card, a homemade cake and sang for her.
