‘Highway Heroes’ acclaimed in competition

15.08 | 9 April 2009 |

Children and parents were invited to vote for their favourite ‘lollipop’ man or woman in a ‘Highway Hero’ competition organised by the Impact Partnership in Rochdale and Tameside.

Throughout March, listeners to the local radio station The Rev had the opportunity to cast their votes. Then, on the last week, the patrols receiving the most votes recorded their own sound byte, which was played on air for the rest of month.

The competition allowed parents and pupils to show their appreciation of school crossing patrols and gave a morale boost to the patrols.

The winners (left to right), who each received a voucher for overnight accommodation for two, were: Elaine Gledhill (20 years’ service) and Barbara Gould (16 years’ service) who both work for Rochdale MBC, and Ann Swann (20 years’ service) from Tameside MBC.
