Former Presbyterian church minister James Gregory, known to most as Jim, greatly enjoys visiting his weekly art class in Auchterarder to improve his drawing.

The art enthusiast from Auchterarder is set to turn 100 on Sunday, October 9 - but as no card from Buckingham Palace is expected, his friends have rallied to gather birthday wishes.

His milestone birthday is likely to be a quiet occasion as Jim has no children and his wife died 22 years ago, but he’ll be guaranteed three cheers on Tuesday when he goes for his painting tuition with Douglas Matthews at Ayton Hall.

His pals at the Auchterarder Art Club hope to make his day with lots of good wishes when he comes to the popular painting and drawing class.
