John Shipton’s Ninetieth Birthday Party

Around 50 villagers and Shipton family members gathered in Tim Shipton’s house to celebrate John Shipton’s ninetieth birthday on Sunday 9 February.

Charlotte Shipton provided a never ending stream of baked goodies from her oven and Tim refilled glasses with champagne.

Eventually we gathered in the drawing room to wish John many more happy years in Barton.  In his birthday speech he explained that, like the Queen, this was his official birthday and his true birthday had taken place late last year. John is in very good spirits and keeps young by doing the Telegraph crossword each day and reading detective novels.
