One of Angus’s oldest residents celebrated her 103 birthday recently with a party in Forfar.

Jessie (Ness) Davidson was joined by her sister Davina McLaren, 93, at Benholm Care home in Forfar as she celebrated her special day. The staff at Benholm pulled out all the stops to put on a party for Ness, who was born in Forfar as one of five girls and two boys. She attended the East Burgh School and senior school in South Street.

A keen reader, Ness left school and became a weaver, where she met her husband. She is pictured (seated), with, from left - her niece Nessie Martin, her sister Vina McLaren and niece Betty Robb, standing at back.
