Plumstead lollipop lady retires after 45 years

A Plumstead lollipop lady has received a surprise send-off as she retires after 45 years in the job.

Joyce Cooper, who is 82, has been helping Plumstead children cross the road on their way to Conway Primary School since 1974, seeing some come back years later with their own children.  

At the surprise party, local people lined the street to say goodbye to Joyce, who says she will miss the children and has promised to come back every so often to say hello!
