Businesswoman Sheila Chalmers has celebrated 60 years at the Aberdeen bakery she co-founded.
Since then, Chalmers Bakery has expanded across the North-east and picked up numerous awards.
Mrs Chalmers, 83, is still in good health and works six days a week as the director in charge of buying.
Crathes-born Mrs Chalmers did swap her usual 12-hour shift for a slightly shorter one when she turned 60 but the thought of retiring has never entered her mind.
The mother-of-three said: “I just crack on – I enjoy what I do. What would I do if I retired? I can’t just sit in my house all day.” She met Ronald after she was offered a job at a local bakery. They tied the knot in 1956 and bought premises for a bakery in Bucksburn that same year.
