A BURNLEY woman who has been going to the same butchers for 31 years celebrated her 100th birthday with a commemorative sausage.

Mr George Heys, who has a shop in Lyndhurst Road, made the Jackson Five-Spice sausage for Mrs Freda Jackson. Mrs Jackson, who marks the milestone today, on Valentine’s Day, walks to the shop from her home nearby every week. She was presented with some of the sausages, a bouquet of flowers, card and Valentine’s balloon by shop staff.
