It is never too late to learn.

Just ask 99-year-old William Thorp.

He joined a group of men living at Oak House care home in Forest Close, Slough on a day out.

Oak House's lifestyle co-ordinator Rachel Cresdee said: "He told us he had never been bowling before and he was enjoying his first experience and can’t wait to go again.

" On the way back home they stopped off at McDonald’s for a bite to eat. William was given a choice from the menu and he said he would like a fillet o fish. When the order came he was very surprised as he was expecting fish and chips on a plate with a knife and fork. He has never had a takeaway before and said “do I eat this with my hands” which he thought was very funny as did not know you could get fish in a burger.

"He said his family would see the funny side and his grandchildren would be calling him to say Grandad I can’t believe you have had McDonalds."

William will be celebrating his 100th birthday in April and looks forward to trying out more takeaways as he has not had any.
