A St Albans woman has celebrated her centenary with a singalong.

Eleanor Nuttall’s neighbours gathered to sing to her as part of her 100th birthday celebrations on September 21.

Her son arranged a lunch in the garden with close family and she also received a card from HM The Queen.

Her friend Margaret Jones said: “During the lockdown our street set up a WhatsApp group which allowed us to get to know each other in a way we never imagined before – and it brought us all together to sing happy ‘Happy Birthday’ to our remarkable friend.

“She looks nothing like 100 - she is amazing.”

Eleanor was an only child, born in Stirling in Scotland. She trained as a cookery and sewing teacher.
