Queen sends birthday greeting to 100 year old Michael Saliva

The Queen has sent birthday greetings to Michael Saliva who turned 100 this week. 

These were delivered by the Chief Minister, who also took with him a birthday card from himself. 

Fabian Picardo shared the day with Mr Saliva and his daughters, Magda Fortunato and Rosemary Fortuna.

And, Michael Saliva, a carpenter by trade, certainly had a story or two to tell.  As the Convent handyman, later works supervisor, he'd made himself invaluable to a string of Governors and their wives.  

And this was not just him saying, with proof in boxes packed with letters of recommendation from the great and the good.
