A school crossing patrol lady who has helped thousands of children to cross the road over three decades is finally hanging up her lollypop.
Sue Sharpe, who has manned the crossing at Eynesbury Church of England School for almost 31 years, was presented with cards, flowers and presents during a special school assembly on May 26 - her last day in the job.
Pupils and parents also handed her flowers and cards on Thursday afternoon as she saw pupils across the road for the last time.
Sue, who is 65, and also a dinner lady at the school in Montague Street, said: “It has been fantastic, I have had lots of hugs and everyone has been so kind.”
And talking about her 30, plus years in the job, she added: “I have loved every minute of it. The children brighten my day and getting to know the mums and dads as well has been wonderful.”
