A familiar face at a Diss auction room received a big surprise last week.
Sheila Barnard, who lives in the town, has worked at TW Gaze in Roydon Road since 2006. As of May 2010, she has been greeting visitors to the site as a car parking attendant. Normally exposed to the elements, Mrs Barnard has received a brand new hut, which was officially opened last Wednesday. “I am very, very pleased,” she said. “The hut was a lovely surprise for me and considering it was a very harsh winter, I’m pleased I’ve got it ready for next year! I just had my umbrella before, but I also did have the right clothing as well. So this is an extra bonus for me, and any of the others when I am on holiday.”
