Pupils from Bramfield Primary School say farewell to their school cook Lynne Trussler after 25 years

Pupils from Bramfield Primary School say farewell to their school cook Lynne Trussler after 25 years

She’s cooked for thousands of children during a career lasting almost 25 years – so for once it was time to let others take care of the catering.

Bramfield Primary School, near Halesworth, bid a fond farewell to its long-serving chef Lynne Trussler during a special tea party on Friday.

Pupils and parents cooked cupcakes for the event, former colleagues returned to pay their respects and there was a performance of Midsummer Night’s Dream followed by a rendition of some of Mrs Trussler’s favourite songs.

The departing school cook said she was “very surprised but thoroughly enjoyed it”.

“I like cooking, but I absolutely love the children and I shall miss them terribly,” she said. “There are lots of happy memories but I now feel like the time is right to retire.”

Head of school Kate Woodruff said Mrs Trussler was a “wonderful cook who went out of her way to make it special for the children”.
