FAMILY and friends gathered last week to celebrate with a well-loved grandmother who reached became a centenarian this year.

Ivy Brasier, resident of The Chestnuts Residential Care Home, Wrotham Road, Meopham, was surrounded by her loved ones as she celebrated the milestone.

Her daughter-in-law Maureen, of the Droveway, Istead Rise, said: "I really don't know how she has lived so long. She eats all the wrong things and she was the frailest of her seven siblings when she was younger and her parents didn't think that she would live long past her childhood.

"She is a very gentle and kind sort of a lady."

Mrs Brasier was born in Charlton, South London, but moved to Bromley after marrying Charles Brasier in 1940.

She had several jobs throughout her life, including working in the canteen at Bromley Post Office and as a laundry assistant at Bromley Hospital.

In 1996 she moved to Istead Rise to live with her son Alan and his wife Maureen, following the death of her husband 12 years ago, before moving into The Chestnuts in January this year.
