An IRVINE pensioner has celebrated a special milestone by turning 100.

Cheviot Court resident Jim Hamilton, known as Jimmy, enjoyed his 100th birthday on Friday, January 10.

Jim was raised in Stevenston and Saltcoats but has lived in Irvine for the last four decades.

His daughters Christine Thomson and Suzanne Crocket were on hand to help him celebrate becoming a centenarian at his home.

He also received a special card from the Queen to congratulate him.
