A group of women from Plymouth have been going to the same exercise class for 50 years.
Rita Jones, Shelia Trevarthen, Joy James and Hilda Lewis first attended the Fitness League classes in 1964. They’re now all in their seventies and eighties.
They’re still coming every week to sessions at St Matthews Church in Elburton near Plymouth, where they’ve made plenty of friends.
They were presented with certificates earlier this year to mark their incredible achievement.
The classes are dance based and are designed to keep the women here supple. They’re also given advice on how to stay healthy outside of the classes.
Here's what was happening when they attended their first classes in 1964.
- Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment
- Top of the Pops aired for the very first time
- The Beatles' first film, 'A Hard Day's Night' was released
- The James Bond novel, 'You Only Live Twice was published
