On the 23rd September at the Prince Philip Hall, Isobel celebrated her 90th birthday. As well as being showered with gifts from the community, island ladies brought lots of homemade cakes and savouries for her special day.

Isobel had a very enjoyable day spent with her large family and lots of well wishes. The day was extra special for her with the visit of her son Julian Swain from Cape Town, and granddaughter and husband, Maria and Keith Yon from St Helena.
