Five generations of women will celebrate the 100th birthday of their great-great-grandmother with a party and a letter from the Queen.

Mrs Kamu Patel will mark one-hundred years of life with a party at All Saints Church in Queensbury, on May 20.

Kamu, from Harrow Weald, is the eldest of five generations of women, with family across the world.

She was born in Kenya but has lived in Harrow nearly all her life. She has two sons and five daughters.

Harrow Times:

On Sunday, Kamu will be joined by relatives from Harrow, America, India and Africa for a black-and-white themed event to “mark her youth”.

Guests will enjoy a delicious range of food, music and a cake. There will also be a specially made cake and Kamu is expecting a letter from the Queen to mark her great age. 

Family members will perform traditional Bollywood dance routines and give speeches for the centenary celebration. A slide show of family memories is also being prepared. 

Kamu’s great granddaughter, Seema Patel-Rajpara, 38, said: “I feel honoured to be part of a family with such good genes. 

“I hope to live as long as her, we love and adore her for all she has done for us. She has seen so much in her lifetime and we are proud she has lived to see her great-great grandchildren.”

Seema, who works for Harrow Council, said her fondest memory of her great grandmother was sharing a long conversation over many hours discussing life before her marriage.

“I was getting married at the time and she was giving me handy tips and wise words about life and married life. She had tears in her eyes.”

Celebrations begin at 2.30pm.
