A MUCH loved Matchborough teacher has bid farewell to pupils and staff at the end of term.

Teacher Sue Evans is set to retire after nearly ten years’ service at Matchborough First School, having worked at Claybrook First School for nine years before that.

The Inkberrow resident told the Standard she would be using her retirement to spend more time with her grandchildren.

“I think Matchborough children are great and the parents have always been really supportive of different things we have done over the years, they have always given 100 per cent.

“I have made some wonderful friends and am hoping I will still get to come in on special days and keep in touch.”

Coun Juliet Brunner, ward member for the district, said: “She will be a hard act to follow.”
