Daisy was asked to return as a relief SCP in the summer of 2007 and jumped at the chance, officially returning as a permanent member of staff in 2008. Working on Bush Street, serving Pembroke Dock Community School ever since; she is now 77 years young. Daisy or Aunty Daisy, as she is known by the children she crosses, is a well loved lollipop lady, with a smile and kind word for every child.
Some of the children she crosses today are children of the pupils she crossed when she first began. Kirstie Donoghue, Road Safety Officer for Pembrokeshire County Council said “I have worked with Daisy since she returned to her role, however, Daisy was my ‘lollipop lady’ when I went to Bush School. Knowing her when I was a child and now as her manager, I have great respect for her; she is very committed to her job and loves every second. She is a very kind and thoughtful person; it is an honour to have had Daisy as part of our team for the past 30 years.”
