Have your say

While many may choose a slightly more sedate pace of life as they get older, Pearl Plaice, from St Germans, is showing no signs of slowing down her efforts to help her community.

Pearl, pictured above, marked her 75th birthday by swimming 76 lengths, one for each of her years plus an extra one, of the St James pool in Lynn to raise funds for the village’s chapel, which is in urgent need of repair.

Pearl estimates she has raised around £300 in sponsorship for the chapel, of which she is a steward. Picture submitted.
