Family join Mells great-gran for her 101st birthday
A great-grandmother from Mells has celebrated her 101th birthday surrounded by family and friends.
Maria Rossetto came to Somerset in late 1948 having travelled alone from her native Italy to start a new life.
She was joined by her husband a year later and by more family members in the 1950s.
After arriving in the village she began working for the Asquith family at Mells Manor, where she stayed for around 50 years.
Mrs Rossetto has five children, seven grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren, many of whom live close by in and around the Somerset village.
She celebrated her big day in her own home in the village surrounded by her large family, who wished her well for the future.
