A BASILDON centenarian said she felt “100 per cent” after reaching her landmark birthday.

Kitty Bryant turned 100 yesterday among friends and family at Abbeyfield House care home, in Noak Bridge.

Family members came from as far afield as Boston, in the US, and Brazil to celebrate with her.

The grandmother said: “It is a wonderful day as my daughter has come from America and my son from Brazil. We went to Wapping to a nice restaurant and spent the weekend with the residents at the home. I had a brilliant time.”

Kitty also celebrated with her friends from Abbeyfield on Sunday where there was a raffle and cake.
