ONE of Crewe's oldest residents has celebrated her 106th birthday.

May Graham, who lives at Belong Crewe residential home in Brookhouse Drive marked the occasion with a party with her friends and family.

Born in Haslington in 1908, May married at Haslington Church in 1929 and went on to have two children.

May's extended family now lives around the world, as far away as Australia and America.

Daughter, Joan, said: “Mum’s always been one to make the most of life, and it’s great to see her keeping up her activities in Belong Crewe. She had a great time on her birthday, celebrating with a glass of champagne as she opened her latest letter from the Queen.”
