A Weston-super-Mare woman celebrated her 100th birthday by enjoying a meal with her family.

Vera Jordan has lived in Weston for 15 years, after moving from Reigate in Surrey to be closer to nephew Michael Hooper and his wife Christine.

Mrs Jordan was married to Jim Jordan, who died 33 years ago.

She worked in a Co-operative store during World War Two, and also belonged to the Royal British Legion and attended meetings.

She also enjoyed regular bingo evenings.

Mr Hooper said: “She is a very friendly person and liked by all her neighbours.”

Mrs Jordan celebrated her birthday with her family at the Beachlands Hotel in Uphill Road North.
