A woman who resides at Abbots Langley Care Home celebrated her 110th birthday last month and believed that ballet has kept her “on her toes”. Muriel Green, who currently resides at Arden House Nursing Home, celebrated her milestone birthday yesterday (November 26). Mrs Green used to be a dance teacher and specialised in ballet, the activity coordinator at the home, Adrienne Barnes told My Kings News that is was dance that has kept her on her toes. Adrienne commented: “When I first started around seven or eight years ago I did seated exercises with a small group of the residents, small things like leg extensions, Muriel just sat there and lifter her leg right up over her shoulder. I was shocked; it wasn’t until the other staff told me she used to be a dancer. “She still does her exercises, she’s got plenty of lifelong friends who regularly come and visit, she had a good appetite and eats well and she sleeps well. The main thing is she is comfortable, happy and loved by everyone.” Muriel was born in central London and moved to Abbots Langley when she was 18-months after her father brought a duck farm. She moved to Kings Langley after marrying her husband Russell in her 40s and she never had any children.
