For thirty years Clarinda has been a familiar face at Islington 2000. She has worked all this time as one of the cleaners who keep our buildings spotless day after day. She is now ready to retire –  her last day was yesterday. A reception was held in the party room and many residents came out to greet her and let her know how much her work and her cheerful presence has been valued in our shared home.  Everyone was treated to party snacks and nibbles and a chance to say farewell and bon voyage, since she will certainly do some travelling in her free time.
