Following her move to the Manby area, Janet started work at Tiny Tots, which was also based in Manby at the time.

Tiny Tots later moved to Louth, in 1991, and Janet continued to work for the nursery.

Busi Bodies Children’s Nursery bought out Tiny Tots in the late 1990s, and Janet stayed on working with all the children.

Janet’s last day at work came around at the end of last month and members of staff - both past and present - and members of Janet’s family created a socially distanced ‘guard of honour’ for her outside as she left the building for the last time.

One of the organisers, Helen Towl, said Janet was surprised as everyone clapped and cheered for her as she left the building.

It is hoped that further celebrations will be able to take place later in the year when the lockdown restrictions have been lifted.
