Music from the 1950s and ’60s filled a Sunderland care home as one resident celebrated her 100th birthday.

Jane Johnson, nee Wyness, was surrounded by family a friends at Ashlea Lodge in Millfield to mark the happy occasion.

And thanks to the care and attention of the home’s staff, the gathering was able to enjoy a special party.

Jane was born on October 14, 1916. She was married to Vc for more than 50 years and family said the couple had a wonderful marriage.

From that came three children, sixgrandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and four great great grandaughters.

Jane certainly enjoyed her 100th birthday with plenty of gifts, and she received her telegram from the Queen and one from the current Secretary of State for Works and Pensions, which made her day.
