A Ponteland centegenarian received a special birthday card from the Queen to congratulate her on reaching her 105th birthday.

Kitty Stredder was also sent a card by actor David Suchet, a former pupil of her late husband James, and as she enjoyed her big day with family and friends at Ponteland Manor, Mayor Carl Rawlings went along to give her a bouquet of flowers.

She and James got married in 1938 and when he became a housemaster in the south of England, she managed a team of staff including cooks and matrons.

Kitty had a daughter, Diana, in 1945 and she now has two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
