Lollipop champ Heather to light up town

Champion lollipop lady Heather Day will switch on Birstall’s Christmas lights in Market Place on Tuesday (7pm).
The mumofthree, who works at St Peter’s Junior and Infants, was the inaugural UK Lollipop Person of the Year in 2008, beating 15,000 entrants.
Her switchon appearance continues Birstall’s tradition of honouring local residents for their efforts.
Organiser Hilary Wainwright, of the Birstall Village Improvement Group, said: “The achievements of ordinary people deserve to be recognised.”
The Birstall Luddites rotary club have arranged for Santa to visit while a fair and other entertainment continues up to 10pm.
The top of Market Street down to the library will be closed from 6pm.
