Special present for birthday girl Margaret

BELTURBET woman Margaret Timmins had an extra special birthday present this year as she was reunited with her husband for the first time in months.
Margaret celebrated her 103rd birthday at the Oak View Nursing Home. A drive by of well wishers waved to Mrs Timmins from a distance and beeped their horns to celebrate the remarkable lady’s milestone birthday. Santa and one of his elves also made an appearance. However, for Margaret the icing on the cake was being reunited with her husband John.
