A WOMAN in her 90s will be signing copies of her first book - a cookbook to help arthritis sufferers get back to health.

Great grandmother Alice Reynolds, 92, of Erith High Street, decided to write The Beginner's Book of Cooking for Arthritis, after she was diagnosed with the painful joint disease three years ago.

She will be at Erith Library, in Erith High Street, on Saturday, August 1, from 11am until 1pm. The day will be a part of the Arthritis Care Library Project.

The former nurse said banishing dairy products and red meat from her diet made a tremendous difference and helped her mobility.

In a matter of weeks she put her recipes together in the cookbook.

She said: "My doctor said I wish I am as healthy as you when I get to your age."

The former nurse has now nearly finished her biography called A Penny for the Gas.

Her cookbook costs £4.95.
