SEATON mayor Peter Burrows joined the Axe Valley’s newest centenarian for champagne celebrations on Friday.
Around 25 guests attended Elsie Ansell’s 100th birthday party, at Elmwood residential home, in Colyford.
A keen member of the Methodist Church, Elsie lived for many years in Scalwell Lane, Seaton, before moving to Elmwood in 2007.
A card from The Queen and a glass of bubbly were amongst the highlights of her big day.
