A WOMAN has celebrated turning 100 years old with a 40s themed party.

Margaret Eley was surrounded by family at Cwmbran House, in Pontnewydd, for the celebrations on Friday.

Local singers, Pashy Pops, who run a 1940s tribute show called 'Underneath the Lantern' provided entertainment in the form of wartime music.

Sharon Llewellyn, mother of the singing duo, said: “My daughters have been doing their show in South Wales for a number of years, but this one was particularly beautiful.

"The birthday girl was singing along with ‘We’ll Meet Again’ which brought a lot of people to tears, but in a good way.

"It was very emotional, especially as the birthday girl was being quite loud, and seeing them cry made my daughters cry."

Ms Eley also received a letter from the queen.
