An Isle of Wight care home resident celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this month, enjoying a Champagne breakfast and a special birthday party.

Iris Mayled-Overill was born in Southfields, Wimbledon, in 1923 and turned 100 on December 1.

In early life, Iris earned a scholarship at Elliott School in Putney and Southfields before working as a shorthand typist for Wimbledon Council from the age of 16.

During World War Two, Iris worked for the French Merchant Navy and, after the war, went on to work in the House of Commons, returning as a shorthand typist, but this time for British Prime Minister, Harold Wilson.

Iris has lived at Victoria House in Ryde since December 6, 2016.

She celebrated her 100th birthday with a champagne breakfast before enjoying a party in the afternoon, with Maurice Kachuk entertaining with singing and tap dancing.

Maurice said Iris always gets up and dances during his shows at Victoria House and explained that it was an honour to entertain and be part of her birthday celebrations.

Iris, who received a birthday card from King Charles III, says the secret to reaching 100 years old is lots of dancing and drinking champagne.
