A DAVYHULME woman has been forced to postpone her special birthday celebrations but that hasn't stopped her getting celebratory messages.

Myra Shaw was born on May 4 in 1920 in Hulme and moved to Heaton Park aged five and then married James Shaw in 1942 and moved to Davyhulme in Trafford.

She tells her grandchildren about stories of World War II. During this time she worked at Metro Vicks Aircraft in the ammunitions department manufacturing parts for the Lancaster Bomber which was done in the Trafford Park factory. But just as it was completed a bomb hit.

Myra has always loved to holiday with her family. She didn't fly abroad until later in life but soon got the bug and began to travel to European destinations with her daughters. She even visited New Zealand to visit family when she was 70 years old. Recent holidays have been more relaxing to Dolgellau in Wales.

Myra still loves to go out with her family and her favourite regular outings include lunching at her favourite restaurants and retail therapy.

Messenger columnist and local celeb Wayne Devlin even recorded a special musical piece for her.

Myra is a loving, caring and supportive mum, nan and great grandma (gran). Her family have helped to keep her young at heart and strong.
