The home's activities coordinator Angie Vann said: "Margery was born in Twickenham and has a son and a daughter.

"Unfortunately they were unable to celebrate with her this year due to lockdown. We do have a Facebook page which we set up for families and friends, and her family were able to see videos of her opening her presents and blowing out her candles.

"Margery is a much loved member of the 'Rubens family', has a lovely smile and a very cheerful disposition.

"Up until recently she was an avid knitter and you could always hear her click-clicking away with her knitting needles.

"She loves chocolate and biscuits and would quite happily just live on them if given the opportunity. She also loves her cups of tea!"
