Brixham great-grand mum Gladys Criddle has celebrated her 100th birthday – as fiercely independent as ever. 

Gladys was married to the late Ernie Criddle who was well-known for his many years of raising money for charities in the area. 

She was born in Church Street, Brixham, and still insists on looking after herself, doing the cooking and cleaning. 

Gladys has two sons, Brian and Tony, four grandchildren, Linda, Mark, Tracey and David, seven great grandchildren and a great, great grandchild expected. 

A family spokesman said: “She has kept scrapbooks on all the family for years and is now on number seven. 

“Obviously, we were unable to have a family celebration. Hopefully later in the year.”
