It was a full house for the Treloar family at Breage, near Helston, on Saturday as three generations gathered to help Beth celebrate her 100th birthday.

More than 50 family members, and friends, made sure she was the centre of attention after receiving her congratulatory telegram from the Queen.

Beth was born at St Day and has lived in the area all her life.

Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were on hand to make sure she had a day to remember.

Beth was born a few months before the start of the World War I and was nearly five when it ended. She now lives with her son Roy, aged 66, and his wife Julia in their bungalow.

She still takes a keen interest in world and national news and current affairs.
