NTI_OLDEST_BARMAID_06

LINCOLN, UNITED KINGDOM, JANUARY 17, 2013;
Joyce Leyshon who is still pulling pints at the age of 90. See NTI story NTIBARMAID. Britain’s oldest barmaid is still pulling them in at the age of 90 – after serving more than three MILLION drinks during her career. Great-gran Joyce Leyshon has totted up a remarkable 64 years unbroken service in pubs and clubs. Bubbly Joyce – who beat breast cancer three times in the 1970s – started working in bars after the war when she served as a WREN. For the last 10 years she’s been behind the bar at The Crown Inn in Lincoln where she marked her 90th birthday this week. She has also run a nightclub in Cyprus and bars at various RAF bases in England and Belgium where her late husband Ken was posted. Joyce, who still enjoys a whisky and lemonade, has no intention of calling time on her career.
