A NEWPORT woman was granted a visit from city mayor Cllr Matthew Evans at a special birthday party on reaching her century at the weekend.

Annie Hobbs, who was born in Ireland, had relatives who travelled into Newport from the United States and others from her home country for her party at Tregwillym Lodge nursing home in Rogerstone.

Mrs Hobbs, who moved to Wales when she was 18, worked as a residential homes matron.

Among the guests at Sunday’s party were her nephew and niece from Florida.

Congratulations to this lady xxx

I'm a bit worried about the implications of term 'granted a visit' though. Supposing some of us don't particularly want Cllr Evans at our 100th birthday party? After all, we should all have the chance to choose whom we invite to our birthday party - not 'granted a visit' from an uninvited stranger - as if a politician gate-crashing our celebrations is doing us a favour.
