AN INSPIRATIONAL Cirencester grandmother is celebrating working three decades at the town's leisure centre. 

Sarah Nelmes - who recently became a grandmother and volunteers for Marie Curie charities - this month celebrated working 30 years at Cirencester Leisure Centre. 

Paula Dorrington-Brown, fitness manager at the centre, said: "Sarah has been a loyal hard-working member of the team, helping out with the many questions and queries that our lovely customers bring when they visit.

"She has been an absolute stalwart during her time. She is well-known by so many of the members and has been a huge support with children’s swimming lessons.
