Robert Stephens was doubly treated for his 100th.

A Seaton man who turned 100 years old this month has enjoyed a double celebration – one organised by family and friends, and the other by staff at his local Co-operative store.

Robert Stephens, whose birthday was on September 15, has lived in Seaton for 38 years and is a member of groups including the Over 50s Health Club and Probus Club.

His two sons organised a party for him at the Axe Cliff Golf Club, where he was joined by his fellow club members, who co-hosted the bash.

“The party went very well indeed,” said Robert’s son, Chris.

A few days prior to the bash, Robert was asked to visit his local Co-op, where he shops each week.
