Bastille Day heralded a milestone birthday celebration for a "happy-go-lucky" centenarian.

Sophie Bravery marked turning 100 on July 14, with a party at the Parkside Nursing Home, in Park Road, Banstead, where she has lived since January.

Born and brought up in Battersea, London, the great-grandmother was married to the late Sydney Bravery and is mother to Daphne, 78; David, 73; and Jayne, 56.

Mr Bravery said: "She is quite a happy-go-lucky person. 

"It’s sad to see her get to this age and be put in a nursing home. 

"She has been a very, very good mother."
