We recently said good bye to Andrea Welsh who had worked for the school for an incredible 32 years. Andrea started in the kitchens in 1986 after previously working for the Royal Air Force at West Raynham. Andrea travelled from Cromer every day, a round trip of nearly 80 miles.
Andrea has served an estimated 3.9 million meals in her 32 years of service and been responsible for producing 10,800 gallons of custard,2.1 million portions of cake, 59.5 Tons of carrots, cooking 1.6 million eggs for breakfast along with 2.1 million slices of toast. All served with a big smile on her face. She is very popular with the staff and students and has always gone out of her way to make sure all the EAL students, who board have a homemade birthday cake to share with their friends.
Andrea was presented with a lovely bunch of flowers, a weekend city break and a voucher for an afternoon tea for her and her husband Gary.
Andrea be greatly missed by all her work colleagues as well as the students and teaching staff. She is planning to keep busy in retirement by continuing her volunteering for several local charities.
We will miss you Andrea!
