School shows appreciation

A DINNER lady has hung up her tabard after more than 15 years at a school.

Elizabeth Mettrick retired from Barmby Moor Primary School at the end of term.

To show their appreciation the children and staff presented her with a series of gifts, including flowers and a photo album full of pictures taken at the school down the years.

A school spokesperson said: “She always gave a helping hand to the children when they were happy or when they had fallen over and hurt themselves.

“She has a lovely, bubbly personality and she will be greatly missed by everybody at the school.”

Elizabeth, who lives in the village, was also an assistant in the classroom as well as helping out during lunchtimes.
