Doris Blades, known to everyone as Dot, is celebrating her 103rd birthday today (Friday) and for the first time since turning 100 she will be able to do it with friends and family.

For the past two years she had to celebrate her birthday in lockdown at her Manea home enjoying quiet celebrations alone with her son Graham.

Her granddaughter Kelly, who lives in Wales, used new technology to send the woman she describes as a “legend” a birthday message to help make her past two milestones that bit special.

But this year Kelly is planning on surprising Nana Blades with a visit not only from herself, but also from Dot's great granddaughter Amber, who will be one next month.

Kelly said: "Nana Blades is an absolute legend, she is like a second mum to me, and I have never not been with her on her birthday in the past, so it was really hard the last two years. But this year I'm planning to surprise her with a knock on the door from me and Amber.

"It will be great to finally celebrate her birthday, especially when she is now such a special age."
