Stella Clarke, 77, retired as a hairdresser only last year and coaches youngsters to national level at her bowls club.
Former government skills instructor and master carpenter Peter Jones, 94, from Dronfield, Derbyshire, wants to watch his six great-grandchildren grow up
Pensioner Bob Russell, 80, who is a former magistrate, spends five hours each day at sea on his small motor boat, the Mad Hatter
