Great-granny Gill Wilson, 85, from Dunbar began her career as a Royal Navy nursing sister before becoming an NHS health visitor.
But Gill, who retired 25 years ago, is now as busy as ever.
She is a member of the Dunbar branch of UNICEF, helps out at her church, and sits on Dunbar Community Council.
Here she shares some special moments.
Here I am with my family the morning after a relative’s ruby wedding anniversary gathering. We had the most lovely time and it left us with lots of happy memories. There is nothing more special than spending time with family and friends. In this picture – taken a number of years ago – is my daughter Liz Bogie, her husband Dave and their children Calum and Sam behind him. My grandsons have grown into wonderful young men. Calum is 25 now and Sam is 20.
I believe in helping other people. If we all did a little bit it would make a huge difference in the world. This picture was taken at a fundraiser for UNICEF in Glasgow City Hall. I am on the left, beside me is our local branch chairwoman Margaret Laidlaw, and beside her the then Lady Provost Sadie Docherty. Margaret founded the Dunbar branch and in 2012 she received an MBE for her work with the charity.
Calum and his partner Emma, who is also 25, have blessed me with three adorable great-grandchildren, Clara, four, Robert, two, and AJ, who is one. Robert is the fearless one, and all three are great fun. I love them all dearly. I am so fortunate to have my family. They are lovely folk.
This is me with my late husband Keith, who died from bowel cancer 13 years ago. He was 76. He is the greatest loss. We had a wonderful marriage. Before he died he made me promise not to be a miserable thing. Keith was a Fight Sergeant in the Royal Air Force and served for 34 years. This picture was taken of Keith and I at the last Battle of Britain Ball at RAF Cosford in 1983. It holds treasured memories and now takes pride of place on my mantle piece.
