Time is running out to nominate your local Hertfordshire 'lollipop lady or man' for this year's School Crossing Patrol of the Year award.
Time is running out to nominate your local Hertfordshire lollipop lady or man for this years School Crossing Patrol of the Year award.
With around 150 individuals safely seeing children and parents across Hertfordshire roads each morning and afternoon, this is your chance to show how much you appreciate the valuable service that they provide throughout the year by nominating them for this annual award.
Last year's award was given to Dennis Bradding, pictured, who crosses children outside Bishop Wood School, Tring. Dennis proved to be a favourite nominee for his dedication to the job and for his extra involvement with the school.
Stuart Pile, Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said, It is important that we recognise these individuals that keep our children safe each and every day. I hope that many of the parents in Hertfordshire will take time to nominate a crossing patrol officer who they think deserves this annual award.
Nominating is free and easy. Show your support by nominating your local School Crossing Patrol Officer. Email their name, location of their crossing and the reasons why they deserve the award to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for nominations is February 3, 2012.
