This news is about Margaret Cattle who was a lollipop lady. She watched over a crossing in England for 45 years.

She says that she was very nervous on the first day. It was her first time doing the job.

People say that she is really nice, and that she made them feel safe. No one got hurt on the crossing. She is proud of her achievement, and she is retiring now. She is the longest-serving lollipop lady.

Difficult words: lollipop lady (a woman who helps children cross a road near a school safely), achievement (something good that you do), retire (stop working because of your age).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
