FORMER Reddich bus conductor Margaret Webb celebrated her 100th birthday on Saturday, September 19 with a special visit from Diamond Buses.

The bus company ran a one-off service to deliver a bouquet of flowers and a letter from the Queen to the Bowood Court and Mews Care Home resident.

Margaret was also joined by her family who marked the milestone birthday in style with lavish celebrations and live entertainment.

When asked the key to a long and happy life, Margaret said: “A cooked breakfast, being happy and enjoying life.

“My years as a bus conductor gave me great pleasure as I was always able to meet new people. Just like I do at Bowood now.”

Margaret, whose family name has connections to the Standard’s office Webb House, was born in Kelty Fife, Scotland.

She grew up with her two brothers and sister and later married Edward Gordon Webb on June 9, 1948.

They had four children together, Ted, Richard, Doug and Gordon.

They owned the local Webb and sons Bakery, Redditch whilst Margaret worked as a bus conductor.
