50 and Nifty by Beverley Green

Age is NOT just a number!

50 and Nifty is a self-help group aiming to keep men and women in later life active, offering classes that promote self-worth and wellbeing.

Marjorie Pardoe, however, has other ideas. The self-appointed town matriarch runs the group, but the help she gives is a matter of opinion – and the only opinion that matters to Marjorie is her own. Members come and go but Marjorie remains firm in her beliefs: dancing, sex and fun should be replaced with reading, needlework, and setting out your funeral plan.

Her comments are blunt but her tongue’s razor sharp, and if you didn’t know how to act when you came in you certainly will by the time you leave.

A hilarious coming of age comedy – with a difference…
