One of Walmer’s oldest residents, Maria Corbo, celebrated her 101st birthday on Friday.
Last month Reverend Deacon Gerald Watkins wrote to me to say that last year when Maria reached 100 years old she didn’t get a letter from the Queen.
So this year, for her 101st birthday, I arranged a surprise visit to Maria, and a letter from the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
I was pleased to help make it an extra special 101st birthday for Maria, with a letter from the Prime Minister.
My congratulations and best wishes to her. I hope she had a wonderful time.
