Google Calendar not syncing to Nana's Nexus 7

For some reason, Google Calendar on Mum's Nexus 7 has a long-standing bug where it spontaneously forgets how to sync her calendar data.  Since I'm on the other side of the country, and I don't use Android at all these days, here are the notes on how to fix the issue.
  • Open Settings
  • Select Storage
  • Select Apps Data and Media
  • Sort Apps By Name (using the right-hand menu)
  • Scroll down to Calendar
  • Remove Data
  • Scroll down to Calendar Storage (this should be the next one on from Calendar)
  • Remove Data
Make sure you do both Calendar and Calendar Storage!
  • Go back to top of Settings
  • Under Accounts, go to Google Accounts
  • Select Sync (using right-hand menu)
