Top 10 drinks tips for living to 100

Norman Rushworth – 100 and still going to the same local

Norman RushworthNorman Rushworth, who turned 100 on April 17, has visited the Golden Cross in Shrewsbury since 1933, downing an estimated 20,000 pints of his favourite beer Shropshire Gold. The RAF veteran, who since coming to the pub has seen the price of a pint rise from 5p to £3.80, told The Mirror that the Golden Cross has “improved immensely” since he first started drinking in the tavern.

Norman, who drove an ambulance that was converted into a dental surgery for troops in Europe following D-Day, also gave a few tips for keeping fit and healthy at 100 years old.

“My secret to a long life is a pint of beer, of course. I also like dancing and women. What else is there?”
