A care home resident has celebrated her 102nd birthday.
Edith Gosden, who lives at Barton Court in Minster, reached the milestone.
She has lived at the home since 2001, making her one of its longest residents, after moving there from Essex.
Mrs Gosden, who worked as a tailor in a large factory, was one of seven children.
Her husband Joe passed away before she moved to Sheppey. The couple had no children.
She came to the Island as her nephew Cyril Webb worked for L Jackson Opticians in Halfway and thought highly of the home in New Road, so he chose
it for his aunt.
Activity co-ordinator Elaine Bashford said: “She’s such a lovely lady.”
Staff threw a party for Mrs Gosden with a cake and music.
