My Mum Annie Turner on lollypop duty approx 1990 at St. Catherine's. Maybe you recognise yourself in the group of pupils.

Pity you have not posted one of her with her birds - or the dog! She was a wonderful character.

Awh nice to hear these comments. I stood with her when she was chatting to everyone and used to wish she'd let them get home. She used to say 'well its better than being b.....y miserable'. Too true. She dearly loved the children and her job. Oh and the pigeons which she used to get in trouble about, the vicar said it encouraged them to do their buisness on his church, she said 'there'll all gods creatures'
