A MUCH loved lollipop lady has retired from a Clevedon school after 25 years of helping children across the road.

Betty Barrat, aged 74, was given a special send-off by staff and pupils at St John the Evangelist School in Fosseway.

Acting deputy, Nikki Short, said: "Betty is amazing. She's been out in all winds and weathers and is very kind and gentle. She loves talking to the parents and pupils and the children love her to bits. She is irreplaceable."

Betty has hung up her fluorescent jacket for the last time to spend more time with her family and enjoy her retirement.
