A MILESTONE age is today reached by a Bridlington resident who at 103 still enjoys the occasional glass of sherry.

Betsy Drax was born on Monday, November 22, 1909, in Hull and worked as a French polisher from the age of 14.

A keen runner when she was younger, Betsy retired to Bridlington and lives at the Red House Residential Home on St Annes Road.

She featured on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show and is in HICA’s 100th club.
