Szia!

Ígéretemhez híven ma folytatjuk a közlekedéssel kapcsolatos leckénket. A mai olvasmány egy "lollipop lady"-r?l szól. Ki is az a lollipop lady? A "lollipop" ugyebár nyalókát jelent. Még miel?tt arra gondolnál, hogy a hölgy "cukrosnéni" lenne, gyorsan elmondom, hogy nem véletlenül a közlekedésnél kerül szóba. A lollipop lady (vagy man) egy foglalkozást jelöl, mégpedig azt az embert hívják így, aki Angliában az iskolák környékén segíti a gyerekek biztonságos közlekedését azzal, hogy leállítja a forgalmat egy nagy "nyalókára emlékeztet?" táblával.

Jó tanulást,
Üdv,
Nóri

Margaret Higgins loves her job as a lollipop lady
Royal honour
for
lollipop lady

A lollipop lady from Cardiff who has helped children cross the road safely for three decades has been awarded an MBE in the New Year Honours List.

Margaret Higgins has been assisting pupils who go to nearby primary and secondary schools to cross the busy Merthyr Road in north Cardiff since November 1972. She has been given the honour for services to the community of Birchgrove in Cardiff.

"This has come as such a shock, I can't quite believe it," said Mrs Higgins who lives in the Whitchurch area of the city.

"I had a letter a couple of weeks ago telling me that I had been nominated but I didn't think anything more about it.

"Then I got told that I had been lucky enough to get it," she said.

Mrs Higgins began her career as a schools' patrol officer when her own daughter was a child.

"It was only meant to be for a few weeks, I was looking after my daughter and another family member who was ill and thought it would be very handy," she said. "After a while I was offered my old office job back, but I didn't want it because I was having such a great time in my new job.

"I utterly enjoy the work and I have even got used to the bad weather conditions I have to stand in sometimes.

"Being in the job as long as I have, I've seen a lot of the youngsters grow up and now I am even helping some of their children across the road.

"I have got such a nice gang of kids at the moment.

"There is the smaller ones who go to the primary school and the older ones who go to the high schools."

Mrs Higgins said that her husband Gordon was thrilled with the award.

"We are both chuffed to bits," she said.

"I have no idea who put my name forward, it is a complete mystery.

"Very often some of the parents tell me that I deserve a medal for the job I do, so maybe that is a clue.

"All I know is that I want to carry on doing the job I love for as long as I can," she added.
