St Albans man hits a century
CHAMPAGNE, cake and a visit from the Mayor were the order of the day for a St Albans’ man who hit 100 last week.
Harold Jamieson celebrated reaching his centenary at Abbeyfield’s Grace Muriel House with the company of family, friends and Mayor of St Albans, Maxine Crawley.
Mr Jamieson, who was born in Wallasey in 1910, moved to St Albans 10 years ago to be nearer his daughter after living in Oxford for 60 years.
Over the weekend he plans to celebrate the milestone birthday with over 40 family and friends, many of whom are from his bowling club and his bridge group.
He said: “Apart from my hands and my legs, I feel great. I don’t feel like I’m 100. In fact, I’m looking forward to celebrating my 200th birthday.”

The centenarian says he gave up driving just three months ago and only moved into Grace Muriel House seven weeks ago after falling ill. He said: “It’s the end of the road moving in here, I know, but that’s okay because it could be a long road and this is a wonderful place to be. I’m very positive but I don’t mind losing. I can’t win everything.”
