A CAMELFORD woman who has celebrated her 100th birthday recently still has the wanderlust and regularly goes on bus journeys with her friends. Ivy Howlett, who was born and lived in Burton upon Trent, came to Cornwall 13 years ago, to live with her son, Keith, and daughter-in-law, Iris, in Camelford.

She has worked hard all her life and has travelled many miles on the local Age Concern minibus, where she has made many friends and continues to go on trips almost every week.

"She can't walk, but she loves going on the bus," said Iris. Three months ago she went back to Burton upon Trent by car to visit her eldest son and other relatives. She is a great fan of crossword puzzles and spends many hours doing them. Ivy has two sons, Brian, 75, who is treasurer of the Age Concern minibus, and Keith, 69. She has six grandchildren – Sue, Jayne, Wayne, Darren, Angela and Sandra – 13 great grandchildren and a great, great, grandchild.
