Former RAF man Cliff Taylor (91) of Long Sutton proved that you’re as old as you feel after taking a one and a half mile stroll round Nene Park, Peterborough, for charity.

The ex-foundry worker was among about 250 people who took part in the annual Papworth Hospital Charity Walk and he has so far raised more than £400 for the hospital’s heart unit where surgeons first fitted a pacemaker for him 13 years ago.

Cliff, who moved to Long Sutton with his late wife Queenie almost 25 years ago, was joined on his charity walk by good friends Dick and Janet Neaverson of Station Road, Long Sutton.

“If I was a normal 91-year-old, I wouldn’t have been able to do it but since I had my last pacemaker fitted nearly five years ago, I can honestly say that it’s a wonderful thing,” Cliff said.

“I’ve had no problems with it and with a bit of luck, I’ll go on until I’m 100.”
