A CLYDEBANK woman has celebrated her 100th birthday with a raucous party.

Isabella Meldrum, known as Isa to her friends, currently lives in Clyde Court Care Home but was born in Partick on July 24, 1919.

To congratulate her on the milestone, Isa was visited in the care home by the Lord Lieutenant of Dunbartonshire, Angela Harkness, and Depute Provost Karen Conaghan.

A former shopkeeper, Isa has always had a love for Scotland, and would travel the country substantially in her younger days.

Along with her husband, who was a joiner, she could often be found out socialising with friends.

Isa has now settled into life in the care home and is a voracious knitter and crocheter, making treats for friends and family. On her time since entering the home, Isa told the Post: “I have settled into my new home and made some lovely friends.”

Staff say Isa is quite the entertainer, regaling residents with stories and anecdotes that have them in fits.

She’s also been something of an “agony aunt” who offers advice to fellow residents whenever they need it, and is always a trusted confidante to those she lives with.
