A WOMAN who remained a fitness fanatic well into her 90s has celebrated turning 100. Violet Underwood marked her centenary on April 27 at Red Court Nursing Home in Stanhope Road, along with four generations of her family and friends at a tea party. In the afternoon, Violet was joined by her sister aged 98, other family members and a group of eight ladies from Emanuel Church who remembered Violet from her days actively participating in the church's programme of activities, including the weekly exercise programmes. Violet was inwell known for attending these classes well into her 90s, although she made no attempt to offer a demonstration at the reunion. Although she has lived most of her life in central London, she spent 15 years in Croydon and was a regular worshipper at church.
