Children and staff at Stoke Ferry Primary School watched on as cook Ellie Grimsey was presented with flowers to mark her 45 years of work at the school.
School secretary Rhona Bryan said: “Everyone knows Ellie in the village and her daughter has also worked in the kitchens for around 20 years.
“Being a village school, we get a lot of families coming through the school. Ellie’s been here the whole time the kids have and was here when their parents were as well. It’s nice for them to have the continuity and she enjoys it.”
Amanda Massen, of North Catering, presented Ellie, pictured above right with her daughter Jane Harwood, with the flowers. MLNF13AF10290/292
