New Year Honour award for Barmouth school lollipop lady

Among those receiving a New Year Honour this year is Gwynedd lollipop lady Sheila Davies.

The crossing patrol officer at Ysgol Y Traeth in Barmouth has been recognised with a British Empire Medal for services to the community.

Mrs Davies, 80, has also worked as a school dinner time assistant and dinner money clerk during her long career.

A fundraiser for charities, she is also an active member of the Womens' Institute and takes part in many local activities.

She hopes the honour will bring something to the school which has given her "such a happy life".
