The celebration, which included a birthday cake, lots of singing and the signing of a 90th birthday card which will be sent to the Queen, was very well attended, said deputy town clerk Susana Farmer.

“Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.

“We all had a piece of cake – which really was stunning - sang happy birthday and there is still some cake left over which will be put out tomorrow for the St George’s Day celebrations.”
