MP says happy 100th birthday to Mary at Cwrt Glan Y Gamlas

* Simon Baynes MP hands some flowers and a congratulatory note to Mary Trenant.  

Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes went along to Cwrt Glan Y Gamlas in Llangollen yesterday (Friday) to wish a happy 100th birthday to one of its residents, Mary Trenant.

Fellow tenants of the Abbey Road flats helped Mary to celebrate her century last month by toasting her in champagne at a specially-arranged party in her honour.

And the visit from the MP, also fixed up by her friends, came as the icing on the birthday cake, of which there were a few served at a new celebration in the residents' lounge.

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 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.      

Mr Baynes handed Mary a bouquet of flowers and a note from himself wishing her a very happy birthday.
