Our Lolly Pop Lady Celebrates 25 Years - congratulations Bridget!

Bridget Bathe Crossing Patrol Celebrates 25 Years 


Bridget Bathe serves the community well as the 'lollipop lady' outside Leesland C of E Infant School.


Today she celebrates 25 years crossing families and members of the public, 24 of which, on a busy junction outside the school.  


She said she got her old contract out to have a look at it.   It's true Bridget - 25 glorious years!


Over the years the traffic has got busier, different to when I started.


Bridget said she has crossed so many generations.  Children growing up, going to college are now bringing their own children to Leesland!


Bridget said,  'it's the children that make it.  They love me and I love them.  It's the children that make it at the end of the day.  The parents appreciate it too.'


'You have got to be happy.  If you have your problems you put them behind you.'


The school presented Bridget with gifts and a sparkly sign today.
