MANY happy returns - 100 in all - were in order for Vera Beeton this week.
Mrs Beeton, of The Chestnuts, in Honeycroft Hill, Uxbridge, toasted reaching the grand age with a party with friends and family the following day.
Pat Huggitt, her daughter, said: "We had a lovely day. Lots of people came, and we had a party in the lounge and on the patio.
"It was a beautiful day's weather and she thoroughly enjoyed herself.
"She phoned me on her birthday just after 6am to say 'I've made it, I'm still here'."
"She may suffer from blindness, but her mind is still very lively."
