It was a sad day at Scotforth St Paul’s Primary and Nursery School on Friday 2nd February. After over 26 years of loyal service in the Scotforth St Paul’s School’s kitchen, Mrs Alison Lofthouse retired.  She was a fantastic member of the kitchen team, preparing and serving the children food as well as cleaning & tidying the hall.  She has not only helped the children currently in Scotforth School, but many children before them, even some parents of the children there now! Mrs Lofthouse’s links with the school started when she was a child here and her children and grandchildren also attended. She is part of the fabric of the school and she will be missed.

In a special assembly, the children and staff presented cards and flowers to show their gratitude for all her hard work over the many years.  Mrs Walsh, the head teacher said, “We are sure that she will fill her free time up and not have a chance to miss us, but she is welcome back any time.  We wish her well and hope she enjoys a long and happy retirement.”
