A Blackpool bingo fanatic marked her 100th birthday doing what she loves best.

Margaret Tomlinson was treated to an afternoon of bingo by employees at Mecca Blackpool Talbot to celebrate her centenary.

Club employees, led by Clyde Webber, arranged a VIP experience treating her to an afternoon of bingo, complete with birthday cake and gifts.

Margaret’s two sons surprised her by flying all the way from Australia to join her on her special day.

The grandmother-of-six and great-grandmother-of-four has been a member at the Talbot Road club since 1994 and plays every Monday afternoon.

Margaret said: “ I had a fantastic time celebrating with friends and family – it was a lovely way to mark my 100th!

“I’d like to thank everyone at Mecca for making my day so special.”

Operations manager, Vicky Slater, said: “Margaret has been coming to our club for over 20 years, so it was only right we honoured her special day with some celebrations.”
