Fresnaye resident Veronica Flower recently celebrated her 91st birthday at Chart Farm. Veronica, born on February 24 1928, grew up in the first double-storey house built in Fresnaye by her dad Ronald Mellish. She then married Ernie Flower and moved around the corner to a house opposite the Fresnaye Sports Club, where her tennis, bowls and bridge career started. Veronica and Ernie had two children, Peter and Colleen. “We are very blessed to have you still with us, and are very proud of you,” says Colleen. “We can only hope to look as beautiful and radiant at your grand age of 91. We love you lots.”
