RICHARD LAMBOURNE has been nominated for the Parish Champion of the Year Award for his caring and considerate ways in the parish of St Peter Port.
The nominee, put forward by Anna Trickey, is the lollipop man for Amherst Primary School.
Anna said, ‘I walk to work every day and have to deal with the Rouge Rue/Mont Arrive crossroads.
‘I was hit by a car when I was seven and get worried about crossing the road even though I am now 46.
‘This gentleman always helps me across the road even though I have nothing to do with the school.’
Richard helps out with the school traffic in the morning and afternoon rush hours.
‘He is always so friendly and cheerful and I can see that he brightens the day of all who cross the road.’
