A woman who met her future husband while camping in Harefield celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday.
Blanche Lane has lived in the village since she married William Lane in 1935.
It was as a Girl Guide she first travelled to a camp in the village from her home in Islington.
Her daughter,Anne Brill, 72, said: "My father lived in the cottages where they were camping and reckoned he let down the guides' tents - and met my mother."
Mrs Lane had four brothers and sisters but is the only surviving sibling.She and William, who died in 1975, produced three children, five grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
Mrs Brill said: "My mother was a regular at the Ladies' Club in Harefield and enjoys news and sport on TV.She supports Arsenal.
"Up until her mid-eighties she walked up to the village. She liked walking and didn't see the necessity to get the bus if she didn't need to.
"She enjoys knitting, eats a good diet and is in good health - maybe because she benefits from my brother's homegrown vegetables."
A family party to celebrate the big birthday was held at Harefield Community Centre in Priory Avenue on Saturday.
