The centenarian celebrated with his family and the rest of the residents at Gable Court Care Home in Roxy Avenue on Monday, July 15.

Mr Scoop is a fairly recent edition to Gable Court after moving from Mill Hill three months ago.

He is described as a "funny, sweet and a bit of a character" by his carers and fellow residents.

The birthday cake brought out for Mr Scoop was decorated in the shape of a sewing machine, a piece of equipment he knows all to well, having been a skilful tailor his whole life.
