South Wootton Pre-School’s deputy manager Pat Denham has retired after 35 years of service.
Manager Jane Curtis said Mrs Denham had shown complete and utter loyalty to the school, housed in South Wootton Village Hall, and had never had more than a week off sick during her career.
Particularly noted for her musical contributions, Mrs Denham had become like a “family friend” to parents, students and staff alike. A day of presentations was held at the end of term, but Mrs Curtis said they all expected they “haven’t seen the last of her”.
