A woman from Park Street celebrated her centenary this week.
Maureen Russell of Wych Elms has lived in Park Street all her life.
She was married in 1945 to her late husband Ron Russell who passed away in 2005.
She started off making lampshades for Harrods in her early career and then trained as a shorthand typist.
She was a seamstress and loved knitting and sewing, and still enjoys a real ale.
