Children and parents from Bassingbourn village paid a fond farewell to their lollipop lady as she took her place at the crossing for the last time on Friday.

Sue Lee is retiring after 20 years of escorting children across the road safely, and was presented with a bouquet of flowers from Bassingbourn Primary School, Bassingbourn Village College and Bassingbourn Parish Council as a thank you for her efforts.

Elaine Douglass, parish councillor for Bassingbourn, said: “Sue has played a valuable part in the daily lives of not only the children and parents that use the crossing, but also that of other residents in the village including the elderly who often stop to say hello as they pass by or use the crossing.

“I know Sue will be missed by all, especially as at the moment we do not have a replacement for her, but I am sure everyone would like to join me in thanking her for looking after the safety of our young people on their way to and from school and in wishing her a very happy retirement.”
