A special 100th birthday celebration saw Milton Keynes resident Bill Brittle visited by the mayor.
Mr Brittle, who lives at Frederick Smith Court, Hodge Lea, was joined by mayor Councillor Brian White last week for a party with friends and relatives.
Fellow resident and local councillor Pamela Johnstone said: “The court celebrated with a large birthday party. We managed to get the mayor to present him with the Card from the Queen.
“Bill is still a very active and wonderful man in every way.
“He keeps us all on our toes here and we all love him to bits.
“He still manages to drive his car, be it only to go to church and shopping. He is a very active member of the church which he and his beautiful wife Di go to.”
