Children are in safe hands when Isabella goes to work
Isabella Collum comes from a generation raised with a great work ethic and she has proved it by spending more than 40 years as a lollipop woman in Fivemiletown, Co Tyrone and never taken a sick day. It is a remarkable record for a remarkable 73-year-old who has not intention of standing down just yet.
She was recognised for her work at the NI Road Safety Awards and certainly she has contributed greatly to the safety of the children under her care every schoolday. As she notes there are many more vehicles on the road nowadays and driver behaviour has not improved. Come rain or shine Isabella is there to guide the children across the road. They are in safe hands.
