Local Prenton lady, Maud Stott, celebrated her 90th birthday in style recently and put her good health and longevity down to her keen interest in sport, notably Tranmere Rovers, and her interest in first-aid.

Celebrating her birthday with her son, Derek, daughter-in-law, Yvonne, two caregivers, Ann Ryder and Mary Jordan and friends from Prenton Golf Club, Maud declared that to live a happy, healthy life you need plenty of interests.

In her younger days Maud was a keen sportswoman and has latterly kept up her sporting interests from the sidelines and clubhouse.

Maud was born in Birkenhead and attended Park High School where she captained the hockey team.

Maud has travelled the world extensively and was a volunteer for the Red Cross for 44 years. She has been an avid follower of Tranmere Rovers Football Club, providing medical cover at the ground up to her 70th year, enabling her to combine two of her lifelong passions; football and first aid. The 90 years young lady is also a member of the Prenton Golf Club.

Commenting on her energetic client, Ann from local care company, Home Instead Senior Care said, “Maud is an inspiration to us all. She has packed so much in to her life and kept her interests going and it’s kept her young at heart.

 “I have been caring for Maud since 2007, with the help of colleagues such as Mary, and we have all learned a great deal from her. She is a great story teller and we love hearing her memories of how life used to be on the Wirral in years gone by and, of course, we have heard all sorts about Tranmere Rovers, her specialist subject!”
