Over 40 friends, former colleagues and wellwishers gathered together this afternoon to say goodbye to our dear Cook, Mrs Helen Barker. After 38 years’ service Mrs Barker is finally retiring, although it is unlikely she will be much of a stranger to Highfields as she already has plans to come back into school to help out in the Infants’ classes. Mrs Barker is something of an institution at Highfields, having cooked for several generations of the same families, and she will be sorely missed.
Mr Peter Ling, our new Chef, replaces her. Welcome to Mr Ling!
