Bertram will soon be 80 – and he is still safely driving big lorries. He loves the work and it keeps him fit and active – and, just as important, mentally alert. Watch him as he tells the story.

LIFE BEGINS AT 70 – Dancing Queen


Jean dances regularly - which keeps her young and fit ... and happy. As far as she is concerned, dancing is definitely the best medicine!.

Dancing for Health

T'S NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT.  Jean thinks age is no barrier. She dances regularly to keep fit ... but she recently also learnt to play the ukulele for fun and, having formed a 'ukulele ensemble' frequently performs in a number of venues. Amazing!.

Brenda and Gordon are two rather special people.

They started fostering children many moons ago - and over the years they have changed the lives of dozens of children for the better.  As they wind--down for retirement they talk about their experiences.
