Woman, 96, goes to same keep fit group for 60 years

A 96-year-old woman is the longest serving member of a keep fit group in Coventry celebrating its 60th anniversary.

Betty Burwood, a survivor of the Blitz, was at the very first session in 1956.

She said "we all feel better after an hour here together and it's a very friendly group."

The group almost folded ten years ago when there were just six members but thanks to fresh impetus from the organisers it now has a waiting list.
