Celebrations were in order for one Lundin Links resident recently as she marked her 100th birthday.

Miss Betty Stott is the former headteacher at Lundin Mill School, having taken the job in 1958, and marked the occasion with friends and family.

She joined Fife Council in 1939, after three years of teaching in Kirkcudbright, and stayed with the local authority until 1975.

She enjoyed a hugely successful career in education, taking up the post of headteacher at Flisk Primary School in north east Fife at the age of just 29.

From there, she moved on to Gateside Primary and then Lundin Links until her retirement.

Betty is now settled in Peacehaven Residential Home, Lundin Links where she enjoys visits from nieces and nephews as well as many friends who live locally.

On the occasion of her big birthday she was surrounded by family from far flung places like New Zealand, the Bahamas and London, as well as friends from the many organisations she has been involved with over the years.

She has honorary membership of the Fife Ladies Golfing Association, Lundin Ladies Golf Club and Largo WRI, and received flowers, cards and visits from each of them on her special day.

In total she received an amazing 107 cards - of course including one from The Queen, Fife Council and Westminster.
