MBE for long-serving Greater Manchester SCP
A ‘lollipop’ lady's 40 years of service has earned her an MBE.
Grandmother-of-two Heather Dalton Morris has seen generations of children grow up while helping them cross the road in Sale on their way to and from school.
Heather, 70, who lives with husband Bill and has two grown-up sons, began working as a lollipop lady in 1970 when the local police asked her to take on the role as a temporary measure.
She said: "I did it for a week, then a fortnight, then a month. Then a payslip arrived - I'd thought it was voluntary! I've been there ever since and I love it."
Heather's MBE recognises her contributions to the community and education over many years.
A well-known figure with parents and children in Sale, she has also used her expertise to train other school crossing patrols.
She said: "I'm the first thing the children see on the way to school so I've got to have a smile for them and I can cheer them up on the way home if they've had a bad day as well.”
