Beach Birthday Party for Ti, 100 Years Old Today

05 May

Our Dear Friend Ti has been celebrating her 100th birthday today!  She wanted a picnic party with a Cornish Cream tea on a local beach with friends and family and for it to be a demonstration about the climate emergency. She says that if Greta Thunberg can speak up for the young people, she can speak up for older generations.  What a star she is!

Being interviewed by the BBC

You can see the BBC report here.

My choir, The Suitcase Singers, all came to Gylly Beach as a surprise to sing for her, starting with ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and ending with a new song, ‘Voice of Change’ written by Claire Ingleheart, our choir leader, and Jamie Locke, about the Climate Emergency. I will try to get you a recording. It went down well.

Her birthday cake was made for her by a very talented young lady, S, one of Claire’s daughters.


We are going to plant an apple tree that will be in flower every year on Ti’s birthday.

Apple tree, Discovery, waiting to be planted

Happy Birthday, Ti! xx
