A local man celebrated his 100th birthday this weekend, surrounded by friends and family. 

Former teacher John Sciacaluga has been married to his wife Maribel for 65 years: he's father to seven children, grandfather to 16 and great-grandfather to eight.

Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, presented Mr Sciacaluga with a card from the Queen. He was also presented with a letter from the Vatican, and mementoes from St Mary's University, where he trained as a teacher.
