Se­cret to reach­ing 102? Food, friends and ex­er­cise

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A 102-YEAR-OLD is look­ing for­ward to a new year after cel­e­brat­ing her birth­day with friends and fam­ily.

Grand­mother of five and mother of one Adela Har­ri­son from Chal­font St Peter had her birth­day on Fri­day, Jan­uary 2.

Mrs Har­ri­son threw the cel­e­bra­tion at The Grey­hound Inn, in High Street, with mu­sic from blues band The Walk­ing Stick Man.

“All of us are re­ally proud of her,” said Mrs Har­ri­son’s grand­daugh­ter Pa­tri­cia Har­ri­son. “Some­times I sit back and think ‘wow, she is still all there’.

“What keeps her go­ing is good food, good friends and good ex­er­cise.”

Mrs Har­ri­son still does ex­er­cises at her home although she has stopped at­tend­ing her old fit­ness class on Mon­days.

She keeps her mind nim­ble by keep­ing on top of bills and let­ters ev­ery Tues­day.

Mrs Har­ri­son has con­tin­ued the fam­ily tra­di­tion of work­ing in the fish and chip in­dus­try through­out her life and has lived in Chal­font St Peter for 60 years.
