A former pupil of Rockbeare Primary who then went on to serve as a governor of the school will retire next week after 33 years’ service.

Moira Trigger became a governor over 33 years ago using her wealth of local knowledge to support the school in various ways.

There will be a special presentation to Moira at the annual School Leavers’ Service at St Mary’s, Rockbeare at 1.30pm on Thursday (July 23).

Rockbeare chair of governors, Wyn De’ath, said: “We are all saddened that Moira has resigned after 33 years.

“She was a pupil at the school and has seen many changes over the years.

“Moira has worked hard and tirelessly to support the school and community.  We will miss her.”

Rockbeare Headteacher Julie Spencer-Smith said: “Moira’s support and commitment to the school has been hugely appreciated by all of the children, staff and governors.

“We will miss her warm smile, friendly approach and sound advice in all our meetings but wish her well in the future and extend a warm Rockbeare welcome to her whenever she wishes to visit us.”
