It was a blockbusting monument to mark a quarter of a century in cheese.
Bosses at Cryer and Stott Cheesemongers celebrated Debbie Grindrod’s 25 years of service with a world record bid for the highest cheese stack.
Debbie, 51, of Thornes, used 25 different cheeses to create a vast 1.3m cheese edifice, worth a whopping £2,500.
And now Debbie’s monument at the cheese hall in Allerton Bywater could be set to churn a place in the record books.
The grandmother-of-two started working part time at the Cryer and Stott stall on Wakefield market 25 years ago and is now part of the management team.
But she said: “I will never retire from cheese. They will be carrying me out of here in a cheesebox.”
