A cleaner has hung up her duster after 41 years at the same County Durham pub.
71-year-old Sheila Nicholson worked six days a week until 18 months ago at the Red Lion in Chester-le-Street.
The great-grandmother still worked five days a week, starting six-hour shifts at 6am.
Working at the Red Lion in Front Street runs in her family, as her mother worked there for 25 years.
Mrs Nicholson, who has four sons, 12 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, is known for her thorough cleaning.
"I have thoroughly enjoyed it and I am going to miss the people. But I will still pop in to keep an eye on things."
She agreed that people nowadays may not have such a strong work ethic, but conceded: "May be that's just the age I am now."
