Norton College said goodbye this month to its longest serving member of staff - Melvin Walton.

Caretaker for an astonishing 44 years, he has also been recognised nationally for his service to Education and in 2009 was awarded the MBE by the Queen.

Phil Loftus, Headteacher said "Melvin has worked tirelessly each day to ensure the school is not only clean and tidy for staff, but that all the requirements of the community are met. His attention to detail is legendary. We cannot remember when he last had a day off sick. It certainly has not been for the last 20 years. We do not know how we will replace him".
