100th birthday celebrations for Evelyn Fleming

100th birthday celebrations for Evelyn Fleming

Thu, October 13, 2022

The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has paid a visit to Bushmills to help one of the village’s oldest residents celebrate her 100th birthday.

Evelyn Fleming reached her centenary on October 10th 2022 and Councillor Ivor Wallace was delighted to present her with a bespoke Platinum Jubilee glass paperweight to mark the occasion.

Extending his best wishes, the Mayor, Councillor Ivor Wallace, said:

“Being invited to share milestones like this is one of the privileges of my role, and I’m very pleased to have met with Evelyn to wish her a very happy birthday on behalf of everyone in the Borough.

“She is very well-known in Bushmills, and I greatly enjoyed my visit. Her family, friends and neighbours helped to make this a very memorable birthday for her, by sending cards and calling in to see her.

“I hope Evelyn enjoyed her special day, and that she continues to enjoy good health and happiness.”

Throughout 2022, Council’s civic gift initiative will recognise those celebrating their 100th birthday or their 70th wedding anniversary while all new-born babies will receive a special certificate.

If you know someone who will reach their 100th birthday or 70th wedding anniversary this year, please email

Parents or carers do not need to contact Council directly to receive a certificate for their baby. This will be offered during the birth registration process.

The initiative forms part of Council’s wide ranging programme of events set up to mark Elizabeth II’s historic 70-year-reign.
