After quarter of a century of delivering mail, Betty ‘the post’ Houston has retired.

Betty started as a part time casual worker to fill in for previous postie Mary Bell’s holidays for three years prior to starting full time.

“I have enjoyed my time immensely,” said Betty, “I have done the same post run for about 16 years and have become very fond of all my customers.

“I have watched all the kids grow up and they all still say, ‘Hiya, Betty post!’.

“I’ll miss my colleagues as they are a great bunch and fantastic posties, but I certainly won’t miss the early rises or getting soaked.”
