Hannah Walker has been a good samaritan in the village for many years, giving help to many when they needed it most. When she retired in 1984 she had been a valued and respected post lady in Boldon for 35 years. During most of this time the post was sorted and delivered from Front Street, East boldon. The picture, from the "Sunderland Echo" shows Hannah delivering her last letter in April 1984. To show appreciation of her great service to the Post Office a special party was arranged at the head office in Newcastle. As it happens her last letter was delivered to "Glebe Cottage" which is shown in the Boldon Buildings album. She is enjoying a long and well deserved retirement.
