School crossing officer is top of the pops!
She’s a local legend and now Muswell Hill school crossing patrol officer “Lidia the Lollipop Lady” has been handed the Humblest Hero award – and a tiny 15cm statue to go with it!
Votes poured in for Lidia, thanking her for her unwavering positivity and her contribution to the community.
Lidia picked up the bronze bust at The Book of Everyone’s awards ceremony at the New London Performing Arts Centre in Muswell Hill. She was joined by the many parents who voted for her, as well as her council colleagues and the Mayor of Haringey.
She was chosen because “her seemingly small acts of kindness - a cheerful wave, a friendly greeting, a warm hug on a cold morning - had a massive impact on the lives of the people she sees every day”.
