The longest-serving staff member at an independent Suffolk school has been honoured for her 40 years in the job – and the 47,000 miles she has notched up on her daily cycle to work.

Framlingham College’s catering assistant Janice Moore joined the school on May 12, 1976, aged 16, and has been a “loyal member of the team ever since”.

To celebrate her 40 years, colleagues gathered recently for tea and cake, while headmaster Paul Taylor gave a brief history of some of the changes since Ms Moore joined the school. Ms Moore was presented with flowers and a long-service award.

She has cycled between her home in Dennington and the college grounds every day, five days a week, for the past 40 years.

The school calculated the distance as 47,000 miles - nearly twice the Earth’s circumference.
