A CARETAKER can now enjoy retirement after leaving a school in Marlow where she has worked for the last ten years

Georgina Brown worked at Holy Trinity Church of England school since for just over a decade, where teachers and students say she will be missed.

Headteacher, Catherine Carter, said: "The school will be a very different place without her."

She added: "She was a good northern lass, she said it how it was and very cuddly and she would always be there for you."

Over the last 27 years Mrs Brown has worked for Bucks County Council School and she was previously at Hamilton School before joining Holy Trinity.

Mrs Carter said: "She is the most wonderful cook, she makes very nice cakes and scones.

"The flip side of her leaving will be hopefully she is able to make us more cakes and scones. She also makes the best banoffee pie, which is great but not good for my waist line."

Mrs Brown, 61, will now be spending more time with her grandchildren and her husband who is the caretaker at a different Marlow school.

For her leaving assembly each class wrote her a poem saying about how they would miss her.

Poems were then wrapped up in a hamper with glitter inside, which went everywhere when opened. Mrs Brown was given a dustpan and brush to clean up, but that proved to be one job too far.

Memo to Headmistress Carter. Do not patronise people by saying "She's a good Northern Lass". You make it sound like they are second class citizens.
