REDDITCH woman Hilda Clulow is now the oldest person in Britain after 112-year-old Gwen Payne passed away last month.

Bowood Court and Mews Care Home resident Hilda, aged 111, was born on Sunday, March 15, 1908.

She has been retired for a staggering 51 years after working as a dressmaker in Balsall Heath.

Care home manager Dawn Leaver said: “We are very proud of our lovely Hilda.




“We would like to congratulate her on reaching 111-years-young and on the fact that she is now the oldest resident in the UK.

“Hilda is a lovely, kind lady who loves her family.”


In March, Hilda celebrated her birthday by surrounding herself with family, including seven grandchildren.
