Council chairman, Les Paterson, councillor Anne Woollett, and clerk Jo Boxall, thanked her for her years of hardwork with flowers, balloons, and a giftcard.

Mrs Jo Boxall, described Ms Hardiment as 'wonderful, kind, and caring', and an 'asset to the community'.

After beginning her job at Broadland district council in 1992, and continuing her work when the toilets were taken over by the town council, she celebrated 25 years with a party for family and friends, on Sunday, October 15.
