A primary school has honoured a governor who made a great difference to the life of the village.

Terrington St Clement Community School has named its new reception area after Carole Pickett, who died earlier this year.

Mrs Pickett had been a governor for more than 25 years and was also a scout leader in the village.

The school’s previous reception was quite small but it now has a larger area and a meeting room.

A plaque was unveiled on Friday last week.

Headteacher Liz Hackett said it was important to honour Mrs Pickett’s contribution to the school.

She said: “Carole made a great difference to a lot of children’s lives.”

The school also held an aspiration fair to help youngsters decide on their future careers.

Representations from more than 30 different professions, ranging from the police and fire services to 
accountancy, went along to talk about their jobs to the whole school.

A reptile breeder and the fire service proved to be popular exhibits along with a production line which was set up by the McDonald’s team.
