A cleaner who has worked for over 25 years at a primary school has retired.

Chris Spain bid farewell to students and staff at White Bridge Primary School on Greensted Road, Loughton, shortly before the Christmas break.

She was presented with a Swarovski figure on behalf of staff as a thank you for all her hard work over the years.

A spokesperson from the school said: “She will be missed but we really hope that she can now enjoy some time to herself and some lie ins.”
