A Crewkerne woman celebrated her 97th birthday with friends after a Body Awareness and Stretching session in the Unitarian Chapel Hall on Thursday morning. Beatrice McMorris has been attending Carol Stephenson’s weekly workout, designed to benefit older people in a supportive and non competitive environment, for the last 18 months. Class instructor Carol and others who regularly attend decided to mark their friends 97th birthday with a special cake, made and decorated by one of Bea’s exercise friends.
Bea’s official birthday is on December 2nd when she is looking forward to spending her special day with family. When asked what is the secret of a long and healthy life? Bea said: “Keep busy and have lots of varied interests and don’t watch TV all day.” Bea certainly keeps herself busy, in addition to attending the weekly exercise class and taking part in the interesting and varied routine, put together by Carol from her many years experience in yoga, chi gung, massage and martial arts, Bea enjoys spending time out doors working on her allotment. If anyone is interested in joining Bea and friends at the exercise class, please call Carol on 01460 391088.
