A Croydon woman has celebrated her 107th birthday surrounded by friends and family.

Kit Moon and the group from Westside Nursing Home in Purley marked the big occasion on August 8 with a special visit from Mayor of Croydon Humayun Kabir.

So what did the birthday girl have to say following the big event?

She could only think of everyone else.

"I’ve had so many visitors," she said.

"I hope everyone got home safe."

Diane Collins is the nursing home's manager and was delighted at the turnout.

"Kit is a wonderful lady and brings so much laughter to the home," she said.

"It is lovely to see everyone come together to celebrate her big day.

"A visit from the mayor has been a great surprise for her."
