Bramfield: School pays a fond farewell to popular cook 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.”
