Marion Green enjoyed a meal with her family and friends at La Cucina restaurant, in Uphill, to mark the occasion.

She retired to Weston from Harrow in 1984 with her husband, Martyn, and they were involved in the Chew Valley Lake Sailing Club.

Marion joined the Boulevard United Reformed Church where she ran the Sunday school for many years and was a regular church visitor.

The pair were members of the Liberal Democrats and Marion worked as a volunteer in its press office where she collected cuttings and helped with promotional literature distribution.
