90-year-old bouncer retires

Former prisoner of war Bob Dudley is retiring after 25 years as the bouncer at the working men's club.

"I think it is important to keep working into old age. It keeps you lively and active and stops you from slouching about all over the place. It is really fulfilling," says the 90-year-old.

Irchester Working Men's Club president Clifford Bates said Mr Dudley was the perfect choice for the job. "We employed him because he had a bit of charisma. If anything wanted doing he would do it. He could hold the fort.

Mr Dudley is a great example of keeping active and maintaining purpose well into old age.
