A GRAN celebrated her 108th birthday in her care home - with a Whatsapp call from family and an online performanace from a vintage singer.

Mary Owen, who lives at Abbey Rose Court care home, in Haydock marked her big birthday with other residents and staff by enjoying an afternoon tea on Tuesday, November 17.

Due to lockdown restrictions, Mary, who served as a Grey Owl with the Brownies until she was 95, was unable to see her granddaughters.

But they made sure to make her day special by organising a Whatsapp call and for an online performance of all her favourite old time tune from a live singer.

Mary got a card from The Queen. She's received one each year since turning 100.
