Chris Frankland, a Dairy Crest milk&more milkman from Cardiff, is retiring after 57 years of service to the Dinas Powys area.

The 74-year-old started his career on September 1st 1957, and ever since has been spending his early mornings ensuring his customers have fresh milk on their doorstep.

Whether he was in pouring rain or knee deep in snow, he delivered to his customers whatever the weather - sometimes even picking up their shopping or prescriptions!

Although he has been working as a milkman for over half a century, he says his love of serving his community started even earlier, when he was a milkboy in 1949.

Chris's last round will be this Saturday 26th April.
