BIRTHDAY celebrations have been held at Morel Court with elderly resident Margaret Smith marking another significant milestone.
Mrs Smith is 101 today (Tuesday September 17).
To congratulate her, Penarth Town Mayor Councillor Neil Thomas visited her at the care home on Raisdale Road.
Margaret has lived in Penarth all her life, and survived two world wars.
In 1912, the year she was born, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sunk on her maiden voyage from the United Kingdom to the United States.
It was the same year British polar explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott and his team thought they were the first explorers to reach the South Pole, only to find out Norway’s Roald Amundsen had beaten them to it.
The staff and councillors at Penarth Town Council wished Margaret a very happy birthday.
