A REDDITCH woman who turned 100-years-old last week said the secret to her longevity is “not giving up.”

Sociable and bubbly Molly Fisher, who has lived in in Oakenshaw for more than 50 years, marked her birthday on Friday, February 22 with a visit from the Mayor of Redditch, Juliet Brunner.

She also spent quality time with her family, friends, and neighbours as they dropped off flowers, cards and presents.

Independent Molly, who regularly finds time to socialise and has a big circle of friends, said: “I haven’t had my letter off the Queen yet but I’ve had so many other cards I can’t believe it.

“It’s absolutely lovely that so many people have come to see me. I don’t deserve all this attention.

Speaking on her age Molly said: “I don’t feel 100-years-old at all.

“To get to this age you just have to keep going and going – living your life to its absolute fullest.

Neighbours Anne Marchant and Phyllis Henson, who have lived next door to Molly for several years, were over-the-moon to see the her enjoying herself on her big day.

“Her church friends are hosting a party for her at the Ecumenical Centre soon, so she’s really looking forward to that,” said Anne.

“We can’t keep up with her, she’s just so active, you’d never believe she’s as old as she is. We’re so glad to see her looking so happy”

Borough Mayor Juliet Brunner said: “Molly looks absolutely fantastic – I want to know her beauty secrets.

“I wish her a massive happy birthday.”
