It was the end of an era on 30th June 2017, when long time Caretaker, Mrs Susan May, (left), hung up her keys at the Carnegie Centre.
Sue has been locking up, making tea, keeping the Town Clerk right for the last 17 years. A fixture at many a Village Venture Event and Remembrance Days, Sue has decided it is time to take things a little easier.
It has been a sad time for Sue recently, shortly after deciding to retire, from the Carnegie Centre, her Mum died and the last few weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions for this very popular lady.
Sue’s links with the Carnegie go way back, being the great niece of Francis Martin, the builder who was responsible for building the Carnegie Centre, when it was built as a library. (Mr Martin is commemorated on a stone at the front of the Centre).
We think of Sue with a smile, hurrying us along and making sure the doors are locked. The Town Council wishes Sue all the best and she was presented with a bouquet and a Stapleford Scarf to remind her of the many happy years spent at the Carnegie Centre.
We look forward to welcoming Sue to events as a resident and we are sure she will tell us if we are not doing things right.
All best wishes and good luck for the future see you soon Sue.
