Mrs Dulcie Plummer, Southwell’s School ‘Lollipop Lady’ was delighted to be back on the job two days after being suspended because of an unfavourable medical report.
Local parents, school governors and councillors ensured Mrs Plummers suspension gained maximum publicity an Southwell’s lollipop lady became a national news feature on radio, television and in the press for a week
Nottinghamshire County Council’s Road Safety Department acted swiftly and agreed to reinstate Mrs Plummer after receiving a favourable medical report from her own doctor.
Mrs Plummer would like to thanks everyone who sprang to her defence and for the confidence the local community has shown in her – she looks forward to shepherding the town’s school children safely across Queen Street and the Ropewalk for some time to come.
