"I take jam tarts to my neigh­bours and friends, es­pe­cially if I knowthey have a birth­day com­ing up’’ – Elsie Down­ing , 88, who keeps her­self ac­tive with vol­un­tary work, or­gan­is­ing events for se­nior cit­i­zens, and look­ing after chil­dren, grand­chil­dren and great grand­chil­dren. ‘‘I have four gen­er­a­tions liv­ing at my­house,’’ Elsie says. "It’s about meet­ing dif­fer­ent peo­ple, mak­ing friends, and some­thing to do, and as well as the so­cial as­pect, it’s amod­er­ate form of ex­er­cise’’ – Se­nior Cit­i­zens in­door bowler Keith Bell­house. In­door bowler Tony Cull says the com­pan­ion­ship, ca­ma­raderie and com­pe­ti­tion is all about en­joy­ment.
