With an average age of 83 years young, reaching a combined total of 1002 years and a hole in one, the group of fired up residents rose to the challenge with table top football and ice hockey, hoop the peg and skittles.

Activity Co-ordinator Sandie Ball, who organised the event, said: "The mini-Olympics afternoon was a great success with many residents joining in the games."

In first place with 207 points was Irene Howell, aged 82, closely followed by 78-year-old James Tomlinson with 204 points and, in third place, Gordon Burdett, aged 83, with 198 points.

The winners were presented with a certificate and a Silver and Gold Olympic Torch Trophy. All participants also received a Rufus badge.

At 92, new resident Marion Green managed a hole in one as she looped the peg with her first shot.
