100 Today !!!

Tunbridge Wells Caremark client reaches Centenarian landmark.
Stanley's secret to making it to 100? 'I just got old, unfortunately'
He is as sharp as ever....he remembers fondly his career as a police officer and his time spent in the Royal Navy. Talking about life at 100 he said "I am not a moody person. I haven't overtaxed myself and I haven't been a heavy drinker and I don't smoke. I did these things in a previous era. But its what you put into life."
Martin Steyn (Managing Director) pictured with Stanley said "Congratulations on reaching such a milestone. You are clearly someone who enjoys life and may you long continue"
