Anne Bray wanted to be either the ''silliest or the fittest
great-grandmother in Dunedin''.
With her 80th birthday coming up on Saturday, the South
Dunedin woman has no plans to ease up - she is a regular in
two walking groups and is also one of The Star's most senior
She started helping her great-grandson out with his paper run
several years ago and then when he grew out of it she started
helping her great-granddaughter, Millie Bray (14).
The run is in Mornington and takes in a few hills which makes
it even more challenging. She also helps with the Property
Press on Fridays.
Ms Bray said she liked to keep active and did a range of
walks with Mosgiel group the 50's Forward Walking Group on
Thursday mornings and has been a member of the Wise Walkers
for more than 20 years.
''And I hope I can keep it up for a while yet.''
She has ''done'' the world's steepest street - Baldwin St - a
few times in the past and plans to tackle it again soon.
