Boroughbridge’s Springfield Garth care home resident Fred Hodson turned 103 on Friday, April 12.

The former World War Two firefighter, originally from Colne, Lancashire, said the secret to long-life is “everything in moderation, you can’t go wrong”.

He had a special party at the care home to celebrate his birthday.
