A 70-year-old fitness instructor who teaches in Windsor is celebrating half a century in her career.
Rosemary Barber, who lives in Holyport has spent 50 successful years running classes under exercise charity The Fitness League building up a loyal client-base and esteemed reputation in Windsor and the surrounding area.
On Saturday, Rosemary held a party which saw more than 80 of her pupils past and present attend the event held at the New Windsor Community Association centre in Hanover Way where she still teaches.
Under the Fitness League brand Rosemary has also set up classes in Guildford, London and the USA.
Rosemary still runs classes on Monday evenings and Thursday mornings in Windsor and two classes a week in Uxbridge.
At the party guests were treated to a film presenting a snapshot of work that Rosemary has produced over the decades including a performance at the Royal Albert Hall.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed my work and it have given me great opportunity to meet a lot of people," said Rosemary who intends to continue teaching for many years to come.
