Centenarian Greta Wilson is the latest recipient of a special Platinum Jubilee gift from the Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

A resident of Madelayne Court in Portstewart, Greta recently enjoyed a visit from Councillor Richard Holmes as part of her birthday celebrations who presented her with a bespoke glass paperweight.

Offering his best wishes to Greta, the Mayor said:

“Engagements like this are a real honour for me as Mayor of the Borough and I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to meet Greta and share her momentous birthday celebrations with her. I received a very warm welcome to Madelayne Court, and I would like to thank everyone there for making my visit so special.

“During this Platinum year I am very pleased to be able to recognise our oldest residents in this way and I want to wish Greta continued health and happiness with her family, friends and all those who care for her.”

Council’s Platinum Jubilee civic gift will run throughout 2022, with a special gift for all residents who reach the age of 100 during the year as well as couples celebrating their 70th anniversary wedding.

If you know someone who is eligible, please email:

The initiative also includes a special certificate for all babies born in 2022, while a teddy bear will be offered to those born on February 6th 2022 (the date of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession) or during the month of June.

Parents or carers do not need to contact us directly to receive a certificate or teddy bear (if eligible). The gifts will be offered during the birth registration process. If you have already registered your baby, a Council officer will contact you automatically in due course.
