Bosses and staff at Spalding’s Red Lion Hotel raised a glass of sparkling stuff to toast Valerie Hook’s 30-years’ service.

Valerie, who is in her eighties, has worked at the hotel for nearly 32 years, mostly as the breakfast cook although she used to cook lunches as well.

Managing partner Nigel Wilkins said: “I can’t remember her ever letting us down during the nearly 30 years that I have been here.”
