FOND tributes have been paid to a school caretaker who supported teachers and pupils for 33 years.
A memorial was unveiled last week at Denes High School in Lowestoft, in memory of David Robinson, far right.
Mr Robinson, who died in June, was a popular member of staff and his colleagues, along with family and friends, unveiled a new water feature at the school in his memory.
Head teacher Mick Lincoln said: “For 33 years Dave supported his colleagues, and particularly teachers, to do their best for our students.
“His death leaves a big gap in our staff team and he is much missed.”
Mr Robinson’s three children said they were delighted that a water feature had been dedicated in his memory as he loved his garden and its water feature.
It was a poignant occasion for the family when the memorial was dedicated last Wednesday, October 20, as it would have been David and Muriel Robinson’s 31st wedding anniversary.
