100 for Grace


A FARM shop in Duffield laid on a treat for loyal customer Grace Emmunds to help celebrate her 100th birthday.

Grace, who lives in Derby, visits Croots, on Wirksworth Road, most weeks.

And when her latest visit coincided with her 100th birthday, staff popped up with a surprise birthday cake to mark the special occasion.

“Grace has been coming to us since day one when we opened in 2008, and visits virtually every week,” said shop owner Steve Croot. “She’s marvellous and we love to see her. We were really pleased to hear that she was coming in on such a special day.”
