Memories of Stanmore - Mandy Dodd (nee Holder) - 1967

I am a ex-pupil of Stanmore primary I spent many wonderful years through my younger years. My two girls came to Stanmore and so has my granddaughter. My name when I went there was Mandy Holder, my three sisters and brother also came to Stanmore, so did my late father who also was Father Christmas one year.

I started working in the school in about 1989 as a catering assistant working in the old kitchen, working ten hours a week as a catering assistant. I am now working at Stanmore as the unit manager of the kitchen for hc3s. I have only had three years out of Stanmore, I came back and was then a unit supervisor, then promoted to a unit manager. I also cook for St Faiths primary from Stanmore. The school has changed over the years.

I enjoyed my time as a pupil there, now I am enjoying my time cooking healthy meals for the children.

I love working with the staff at the school.
