Secret to reaching 102? Food, friends and exercise
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.
