A Portishead woman who enjoyed years of travelling with her husband by motorbike and sidecar celebrated her 100th birthday this month.

Muriel Nicholls reached the landmark on September 6, celebrating with her loved ones at Norewood Lodge which she now calls home.

Cardiff-born Muriel married husband Howard in 1941, but after his death she moved to Portishead, the home of her niece Marilyn Koops, for nursing care.

Muriel worked as a cigar roller and in photography and fashion shops throughout a varied career.

Muriel and Howard never had children, but they travelled widely - particularly with Hammond Organ Enthusiasts.

Marilyn said: "They went everywhere in a motorbike and sidecar before a Reliant Robin three-wheeler became their wheels."

Muriel celebrated with a party, enjoying cake and received a customary 100th birthday card from the Queen.
