An auxiliary nurse at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary has retired after 39 years service.
Jenny Stokes was on Ward 16 Gynaecology at the infirmary.
Jenny said: “I started out as a catering assistant on February 2, 1980. I then moved to the women’s unit as an auxiliary/CSW on July 1, 1983 where I have worked on ward 16 for most of that time.
After I retire I plan to spend more time at the gym and maybe try some yoga. I will also de-clutter my house which my husband will be pleased with. I may even get some tattoos – or maybe not!
“I will miss the colleagues and friends I have met over the years but I am looking forward to my retirement and the new chapter in my life.”
