Margaret Little known to all as Mig was the lollipop lady at Kelty Primary School for over 32 years up until her sudden illness and death last year. To mark her commitment to public service in Kelty locals made donations and last week a bench with a plaque dedicated to Mig was unveiled opposite the primary school where Mig would have stood during all the school terms over all those years.
Family and friends joined with representatives from the school and community council to hear MSP Alex Rowley pay tribute to the lady he said “had served generations of children and was loved and respected by so many through her unassuming commitment to keeping our children safe”. He said that Mig had been throughout all those years a true public servant who kept the children safe and looked out for them. He also praised the work of Lorrain Cane who had collected over £500 for the tribute to Mig.
Lorrain said; “Mig was a great person who looked out for us and our kids and people were happy to give to fund this tribute. I was keen to ensure that we got a lasting memorial to mark the 32 years of service that this lady gave to children in Kelty and it was great today that her family were able to come along and hear the special tribute being paid to their mum and gran”.
