Shoppers will be able to say hello on Thursday - her first day back.

Her grandson, David Gregory, 37, said: "She is chomping at the bit to go back. She would have been back at the start of January if she could."

The great-grandmother fell over some cones hidden behind a wall by the Carriage Museum in Mill Street in December.

Her hip bone broke and she had to have the joint replaced at Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Since then she has been signed off from work while she recovers from the operation.
