Lorton dinner lady says farewell
Last updated at 16:56, Friday, 11 April 2014
Lunchtime won’t be the same again at Lorton Primary School after one of its most popular members of staff retired.
Ann Norman, 68, of High Lorton, has retired after working there 41 years, mainly as a kitchen assistant.
Ann, a former pupil at the school, started as a kitchen assistant in 1973.
She went on to work as the school’s secretary, a midday supervisor and returned to her original role as kitchen assistant before she retired on Wednesday.
Staff presented her with flowers and a painting of the school, and some pupils bought her a book entitled Things To Do Now You’re Retired.
Ann, whose children Paul and Julie also went to the school, said: “I will miss the company, the staff, the children – I will miss everything about it.”
Ann, who lives with her husband Tony, has no specific plans for her retirement, but she is hoping to use her electric bicycle.
Olivia Harrison, headteacher, said: “She has often given up her time to do extra events, such as sports day. She goes above and beyond.”
