A remarkable lady who was born just two years after the Titanic went down celebrated her 109th birthday on Wednesday.
Mrs Ivy Skeate received a card from His Majesty The King to mark the occasion of her 109th birthday on November 1.
She celebrated her birthday, with tea and cake and visits from family.
Pembrokeshire County Council Chairman Cllr Tom Tudor also visited Ivy to wish her a happy birthday and brought a gift of flowers.
Cllr Tudor said: “It was lovely to visit Mrs Ivy Skeate to wish her happy birthday on her 109th birthday celebrations, and what a lovely, kind and caring person she is, and what a special day full of sweet and happy moments.”
Ivy was born in Southwark, south London in 1914, the same year that the First World War started.
When Ivy was an infant, her policeman grandfather patrolled the streets of south London giving residents the all-clear following zeppelin raids with shrill blasts of his whistle.
Having married James Skeate in 1938, Ivy subsequently moved out to Surrey after the onset of the Second World War, later having two daughters.
She and her husband settled in Newport in 1966 where they ran West End Stores for many years.
She has lived at Hillside Care Home in Goodwick since 2013.
Annette Narbett, Registered Home Manager at the Pembrokeshire County Council-run Hillside, said all staff are very fond of Ivy who still enjoys a game of bingo after lunch on a Wednesday and Sunday.
