Local resident hits 101 and still cracking jokes

Raglan centenarian Peter Green reckoned he was “not doing too bad for a young fella” as he celebrated his 101 years with friends at home in Cliff Street on his birthday last Monday.

He looked dapper for the occasion in suit and tie, and told the Chronicle it’s the only time of the year he gets dressed up.
Personal caregiver Cora Fischer, who’d baked the birthday cake, was on hand to make sure things ran smoothly.

But Peter handled phone calls and visitors with aplomb — obviously enjoying the occasion — and boasted he’d passed his warrant of fitness recently, despite having had a cataract operation this month.
And he was keen to look for a youth hostel in Raglan – “if I ever need to move”, he quipped.
