Letchworth dinner lady retires

AN 80-YEAR-OLD dinner lady has decided to hang up her apron after serving pupils for almost two decades.

Peggy Burnett finished her last day at Woolgrove School in Letchworth GC to coincide with the Christmas break.

Peggy celebrated her 80th birthday in October but after 18 years at the special needs school in Pryor Way has said farewell to students and staff.

“She has always enjoyed supporting and playing with the children and she holds a special place in the hearts of staff and children alike,” said the school’s community coordinator and senior teaching assistant Angela Gooding.

“She is young at heart and always takes great pleasure in bringing in toys for the children to play with on the playground.
