(September 1981) Letter to the village

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking most sincerely all those who planned such a wonderful evening to mark my retirement, and also my many friends who came to wish me well.

I have so many memories of Sibford Primary School, of the wonderful colleagues that it was my good fortune to work with, the supportive parents, and lastly, but by no means least, of their children with whom I have shared so many happy years.

I hope that you will extend to Mrs Greenhalgh, my successor, the same warmth and co-operation that you have always given me.

May God bless you all.

Mary Poulton
