A super grandmother has celebrated her 100th birthday with a floral presentation from the National Association for Retired Police Officers.

Mary Head, of Brampton, Chesterfield, spent most of her formative years in Buxton and was crowned Buxton Festival Queen in 1927 before marrying her late husband George Head who was a Derbyshire police officer.

The National Association for Retired Police Officers, which supports the widows of former officers, presented Mary with flowers to mark her 100th birthday on December 29.

Mrs Head worked at a music shop in Buxton and was a very good pianist, performing at Buxton Opera House. Mary has four children, 12 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren.
