Hillside Primary School’s much loved lollipop lady, Shirley Albon, has left after just under 11 years’ service.
Shirley said, “I will miss the children, they are lovely. I think that Hucknall have the best, brilliant children.”
In an emotional assembly she told the whole school: “I just want all of the children to get really clever and get really good jobs.”
Afterwards she said: “I’m in shock at the response and wasn’t expecting the assembly, it’s a nice surprise. It’s brilliant!” The children presented Mrs Albon with flowers and an orchid plant and a card signed by all.
