A Weston-super-Mare woman enjoyed a double celebration of her 100th birthday after her care home and family both gave her a day to remember.
Irene Newey, who was born on May 28, 1916, has one son, two grandsons and five great-grandsons and they were all able to celebrate with her.
Her son Ralph told the Mercury she had a ‘splendid’ time and will treasure her message from the Queen.
He said: “She had a lovely and splendid day and she was made up with her picture from the Queen. It was lovely to have all the family together – there are not many girls in our family but it was great all her grandchildren were there.”
