Mablethorpe resident Robert Black celebrated his 100th birthday on New Year’s Day with his wife Betty and his close neighbours who threw him a party.

As well as receiving his official card from the queen, he also got a telegram from the minister of pensions and a visit from Mayor of Mablethorpe and Sutton, Joyce Taylor.

His neighbour Barbara Hall is astonished by his ‘good memory’ and the way he and his wife look after one another. Robert has one grandson and one great-grand daughter.
