A Great-grandmother celebrated her 90th birthday in lockdown by climbing to the top of the Malvern Hills.

Marjory Pearce, from Worcester, has been shielding since last year, but ventured out to celebrate turning 90 in style with her daughter Joanne.

Mrs Pearce said: "It was a marvellous day, I wasn't sure if I would make it to the top, but I did it with ease, with the help of my trusty walking boots and sticks.

"I have always been a keen walker and have walked the hills many times, but after being cooped up at home for a year due to the lockdown I didn't know if I would make it.

"It was a fantastic day, unbeknown to be my daughter had organised for all my friends and family to meet us at the top to sing happy birthday, of course this couldn't happen due to restrictions.

"When we got to the top, there were three strangers there so she asked them to sing happy birthday to me, and they did! I still don't know who they are but I am very grateful. It was a very special day."

Mrs Pearce then shared a celebratory afternoon tea, complete with cake, balloons and Prosecco in her daughter's camper van. She says the key to a long life is positivity.

She said: "I believe it is so important to stay positive and keep a sense of humour, especially during the lockdowns. It has been such a shame, I have lost a large chunk of the end of my life, but you've just got to keep going. My 90th was marvellous it was a day to remember and I hope my 100th will be the same!"
