Joyce Woodward, a lifetime Methodist and member of the Wimborne Methodist Church since May 1978, celebrated her 100th birthday on Friday 21st December 2018. Although not able to attend Church regularly in the past couple of years because of frailty and declining health, she is still very much aware of all the Church activities.

Family and friends gathered at The Wimborne Care Home to watch Joyce, helped by her son, Nigel, open many cards — including notable ones which had been received from The Queen, Amber Rudd as Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and the Royal Air Forces Association, as Joyce and her late husband, Ted, met and served in the RAF.

There were plenty of flowers decorating the lounge and a beautiful cake with candles and a sparkler — which set off the fire alarm! A small group from "Voices" sang Joyce's favourite carols, and brought back happy memories of the time when she too sang with this group.
