Is this the Eye's Most Senior Reader?

Pictured perusing the back page of Issue Six (without glasses!) is 102-year-old May Wellard.

“I like to keep up with events in Faversham,” says May at her care home in South East London. “I used to visit the town regularly to stay with my son John. I just hope his involvement won’t make the local council send the police around again!”
