The assistant manager of a residential home in Trimley St Mary has retired after 27 years in the job.
A big retirement party was held at Brierfields on Friday to say a fond farewell to long-serving staff member Pat Mills, with the mayor of Felixstowe Nick Barber making a surprise appearance.
Leanne Greeves, manager of the home, said Mrs Mills would be greatly missed.
“Pat has always been great fun,” she said. “When we have our theme days she was always the one in the most outrageous outfit.
“She really lifted staff moral, she is really fun to work with.
“And her knowledge is phenomenal.
“I have said to her I wish I had memory stick that could download what she knows.
