Lollipop Lady Alice Hayes Honoured by Southwark Council
In May, Southwark Council awarded our lollipop lady Alice Hayes the Honorary Liberty of the Old Metropolitan Borough of Camberwell for her dedicated service to the Dulwich Community for 40 years at the same location.
Her award stated:
"She has helped tens of thousands of children across the road, and then seen some of their children safely over the road a generation later.
She is always willing to help and go the extra mile, regularly going above and beyond for Southwark's residents through her daily actions.
Alice started her career withe the Metropolitan Police in February 1979 before transferring to APCOA parking in April 2000.
Her commitment, devotion and care to the children and community is exemplary. No matter what the weather conditions are, Alice will be at the crossing location getting on with her work without fail.
The behaviour of SCPOs at their sites, the manner of stopping traffic, and marshalling pedestrians safely across the road, is the backbone of the SCP service, Alice always performs her role with a smile on her face."
