Cwrt Glan Y Gamlas resident Mary celebrates 100th birthday in style

Fellow residents of Cwrt Glan Y Gamlas in Llangollen helped Mary Ternent celebrate her 100th birthday this afternoon (Thursday) at a party arranged there in her honour.

Along with her relatives, they made sure she was toasted in style with plenty of champagne and birthday cake.

Mary was born in Bangor in September 1922, the second of her parents' four children.

During the Second World War she enlisted in the Women's Land Army, working on a farm in the Menai Bridge area Anglesey. It was there she met her future husband Harry.  

After the war the couple lived mainly in the north east of England at towns including Middlesbrough and Darlington. Harry eventually rose to become chief valuer for the region.

For a number of years the couple bred Welsh terriers and showed some of them at Crufts.

Because of the death of Elizabeth II last week Mary wasn't able to get the traditional message from the Queen. However, she still hopes to receive a few words of congratulation on achieving her century from the new King Charles III.
