THE Mayor of Barry Councillor Claire Curtis recently surprised Hannover Court resident Morfydd Ison (known as Peggy) with a bouquet of flowers to celebrate her 100th birthday.
Family and friends had arranged a party to celebrate the momentous occasion and Peggy received cards from Her Majesty the Queen as well as the First Minister Carwyn Jones.
Cllr Curtis said: "What a wonderful lady and it was a true honour for me to be a part of her birthday celebrations. The party was full of friends and family wanting to commemorate Peggy's milestone and some family had even flown in from America for the occasion. Peggy is a very independent lady who enjoys crocheting and spending time with her family and friends and when I commented on her beautiful outfit, the residents of Hannover Court told me she always dresses this smart, although Peggy did say she has had to give up the stilettos now! What an inspiration she is to others and proof that age is just a number."
