VIDEO: Birthday surprise for Iris

Waiting for Video...

Friends and customers at Stitch in Time, on Tilgate Parade, sprang an 85th birthday surprise on one of the shop’s staff today (Thursday January 31).

Iris Malt has worked at the needlecraft shop for almost 23 years and was lost for words when she was presented with a cake – and a rousing chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’ at lunchtime.

And her reaction to the impromptu party?

Sukh Dryden, who runs sewing classes at the shop, said: “She said we should have let her know because she would have done her hair!”
