IT WAS DOUBLE THE CELEBRATION yesterday in St James as two centenarians marked their milestones with visits from Governor General Sir Elliott Belgrave.

Beryl Padmore became the latest centenarian while Mildred Ifill had marked her special day on Sunday but got her visit from Sir Elliott yesterday.

The Governor General, along with family members and MP for St James Central Kerrie Symmonds, assembled at Padmore’s Holder’s Hill home to pay tribute to her.

Padmore said she had reached this ripe age by the grace of God, and although her memory was beginning to fade, she still kept it together.

“In my young age I can still see talk and move around,” she joked. (RA)
