A mother-of-three has celebrated her 100th birthday.

Louise Dixon, of Providence Way in Baldock, says a daily pint of Advocaat and lemonade is the secret to her longevity.

Her great granddaughter, Jessica Dear, said: “She is a very bubbly person with a great sense of humour, and she still loves a good old sing song.”

Louise, who has three children – Richard, Roy and Irene – and a large extended family, was born on September 5, 1913.
