School cook retires after 43 years

When she started serving school meals, pounds, shillings and pence were in use. The Beatles were still together - just. And the Jumbo jet made its first commercial flight. The year was 1970 and Kitty Keeley began cooking for the kids at Dallington Primary in Sussex.

43 years later - at the age of 75 - she's retiring. David Johns went to see her hang up her pinny for the last time, talking to Kitty and the headteacher, Shirley Frankis.
