If you want a healthy job and like meeting people, deliver the mail, says Mrs

If you want a healthy job and like meeting people, deliver the mail, says Mrs. Gertrude Haynes. And she should know because she has just retired after 32 years as postwoman in the village of Priors Marston. She has far-reaching family links with the Post Office. Her great aunt ran the village post office for 42 years and her mother was post-mistress for 44 years. She took over the job of postwoman for the village in 1942. "I never dreamed I would stay in the job this long, but I loved it," she said. "I used to go out in all weathers. I once got stuck in a snow drift. When I started they offered me trousers to wear, but I thought I'd rather wear a skirt." Postal workers wages were lower in those days as well as the hemlines. When she fist started work she was earning just under £2 a week.
