Dinner lady’s silver service
A quarter-century of feeding hungry schoolchildren was marked at Great Torrington School with a presentation to dinner lady Carol Morey.
Carol, from Torrington, began working as a catering assistant in the school kitchens when her eldest son started there in 1987. Shortly afterwards she was taken on as a permanent member of staff and has stayed ever since.
Head teacher Tracey Amos, staff and pupils gathered in the school dining hall for a surprise presentation to celebrate Carol’s special anniversary.
The head thanked Carol for her loyal service to the school and presented her with a bouquet of flowers to mark the occasion.
Carol said: “It’s a great school to work for, with marvellous staff and kids. It’s the staff and team that have made my time here enjoyable.”
Lorraine Harris, the school kitchen manager, said: “It’s been a real pleasure having Carol on the team. She is the life and soul of the kitchen and the team spirit is what makes the kitchen tick.”
