A former Ilkeston schoolteacher has bid a fond farewell to Christchurch in Cinderhill, Nottingham where she has left a rich legacy on her retirement.

The Revd.Canon Joan Whysall, pictured with her family, taught for 18 years at Chaucer Infants in Ilkeston and was also a teacher at Trowell C of E Primary School. In the 1990s she was inducted as the curate of churches in Trowell, Awsworth and Cossall.
