Staff, parents and students old and new said goodbye to Christine Woodruff as she retired from Blessed Trinity.
Christine, 64, has been a receptionist at Blessed Trinity for 10 years - starting when it was St Theodore's.

"I feel excited to see what the future holds but I am sad to leave as it's been the happiest time of my life," said popular Christine, who has two children, two step-children and eight grandchildren.

"I will miss the parents, children and staff. I am going to have some time out but am already looking into carrying out some voluntary work in my retirement."
