Three cheers for Mrs Gregg! The children at Billesdon Primary School raised the roof for their long-serving nursery nurse last Thursday.

Helen Gregg was celebrating 25 years at the school – and she has no plans to leave.

She said: “I have loved working at Billesdon School for 25 years, and I can’t believe how fast it’s gone,” she said. I’ve never moved as I’ve loved it here so much. It’s like a large family. This school is fab.

Mrs Gregg (47), of Thurnby, who works with Foundation Stage pupils, said her only disappointment was not knowing about her surprise celebration party in advance.

“It was lovely, with claps, cheers and memories,” she said. “Usually no-one keeps a secret from me!”
