Irene was joined by family, friends and a couple of extra visitors in the shape of the Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of West Lancs, Councillor Liz Savage and Lorraine Haslett, for a 100th birthday tea party at the Aughton Park Home where she has lived for the last five years.

And she was deighted to receive a letter from the Queen congratulating her on her centenary milestone.

The Ormskirk great-grandmother enjoyed her special day on Saturday, August 1 when she was also treated to a letter of congratulations from the Queen.

Irene was joined by family, friends and even West Lancashire Deputy Mayor Cllr Liz Savage and Deputy Mayoress Lorraine Haslett for a cup of tea and biscuits.

Irene, who was born in Liverpool and was one of seven children, moved to Aughton Park Care Home five years ago in the same year that her husband, George Dickson, passed away.

She worked in an ammunition factory during the Second World War and married George in 1940, with the pair having three children.
