CENTENARIAN Margaret Riley’s face lit up when she saw her grandchildren at her 100th birthday party on Sunday.

Known to her friends and family as Peggy, the 100-year-old was thrilled with how her party at Dearne Valley Care Centre turned out.

Some of her nearest and dearest were on hand to offer their well-wishes, and the staff at the care home said her face ‘lit up’ when she saw her grandchildren.

Wendy Warburton, senior care nurse at the Goldthorpe facility, told the Chronicle: “She likes to be known as Peggy - that’s her nickname.

“She’s still going strong - you’ll definitely know when she wants something.

“She’s so popular and everyone here knows who she is.

“Peggy is lovely and she has a great sense of humour - she’s just so loving.

“She loves a kiss and a cuddle.
