  1. are you still looking for people over 80 who still have high ambitions? I am 89 and looking to go to swimming championships when the virus has been avoided…

  2. Hi Laura, Although I am a very young 76 year old I am the Secretary and PR feller for an Association of retired Royal Navy Sailors who
    attended the training establishment HMS ST VINCENT in Gosport, Hants. We all joined the RN aged 15 and were titled Boy Seaman. The establishment closed in 1966 and our Association was formed in 1996. All of our members are over 70 and many over 80. We have a reunion annually in Portsmouth in October and it may present a photographic opportunity for you, or alternatively I could forward some photos of the over 80s.

    • Hi Allen,

      Many thanks for your message. It would be great to hear a bit more / see photographs of some of your over 80 members. Could you please email to Thanks.

      I’m currently reading through all messages and will be in touch with everyone when I’m in a position to plan further ahead.

      Best wishes, Laura

    I have read about your proposed project wrt over 80’s and would like to be considered.
    I was born in September 1938 and was a child during WWII.
    Raised in a working class family, I started work @ 16 as an apprentice fitter & turner and ended my career as Managing Director of a Group, Building Services Company.
    Widowed in 2012, after 51 married years, I met my current wife in Prague on a singles holiday and after an initial email 2 month courtship, followed by a time travelling between Hayling Island, where I live and South Wales, where Ruth lived,we were married in June 2018.
    Prior to The Lockdown, I played Real Tennis four times a week at a local Raquets Club.
    Interests are,Real Tennis, travel, reading, WWII aircraft and currently, assisting my wife remodel parts of our garden.
    Having had a minor heart operation in 2017, I am now relatively fit and active and looking forward to resume tennis eventually.
    I believe 80 is the new 60 and have many friends of similar vintage who are equally active.
    I hope my tale proves of interest to you and hope to hear from you at an appropriate time.
    Best of luck with your project which I support wholeheartedly.

    • Hi Michael, Many thanks for telling me a bit about your fascinating life. Great to hear.

      I’m delighted to say I’ve had hundreds of responses from this project so I’m going to enjoy reading through them all and then will be back in touch with people.


  5. Laura, heard about your bursary re’ over 80’s. In our village (Long Marton, near Appleby CA16) we have a guy about 82yrs called Keith Spence who combines acting, directing, writing poetry, potting, painting and following jazz amongst his activities. Can I nominate him as a candidate? I’m currently stuck in NZ following pandemic, but can be contacted by email. Regards, John Keith.

    • Hi John, Many thanks for your message. I’ll be in touch with everyone once I’ve read through all the messages. Stay safe, Laura
