Grandma, 82, made more than 50,000 deliveries as Britain's oldest papergirl

A GRANDMA of six has made more than 50,000 deliveries as Britain’s oldest papergirl — aged 82.

Plucky Pauline Bridge gets up at 5am to deliver her local paper six days a week — and aims to carry on until she is 90.

She started ten years ago when she took over from her grandkids and has cycled 5,000 miles.

Pauline said: “I get up at five o’clock every day. 

“I love it and I find it keeps me fit. I start at half six and it’s about a mile and a half. I deliver to 32 houses. I cycle every day, I always cycle.

“My bike is 40 years old. I don’t want an upgrade though, I like it.”

Pauline, of Southampton, Hants, has two children aged 55 and 52, and six grandchildren aged 17 to 27.

Granddaughter Megan, 17, said: “She gets up so early every day, Monday to Saturday without fail, in all weather conditions.

“We can’t believe what she is still achieving and she puts us youngsters to shame. She is an amazing mum and grandma — and we are all very proud of her.”
