Clinton's lollipop lady reaches 20 years of safe crossing

NO RUNNING! Those words have been coming out of Cheryle Naylor's mouth outside Clinton State School for 20 years now.

Miss Cheryle as she is known to the students wouldn't want to be the Lollipop Lady at any other pedestrian crossing.

She has loved the children who pitapatted past her, and some of the parents were students when she started.

"The children make me feel young," she said.

There are two rules she makes them abide by: no running and wait behind the yellow line.

She has noticed the school change with new car parks and a lot more students.

But she still thinks it's just as safe to cross her crossing as any other in Gladstone.
