A lollipop man in the Moorlands has received an unusual gift as a ‘thank you’ this festive season.

Neil Woodley works as a School Crossing Patrol Officer for Staffordshire County Council and is posted on Spring Gardens, at it’s junction with Burton Street in Leek.

Neil was given a lovely knitted ‘mini-him’ before Christmas by one of the youngsters he crosses each day.

Neil told the Leek & Moorlands Echo: “We quite often receive little thank you gifts at Christmas and I was handed a small gift bag which I put to the side until my shift was over.

It was only once home I looked in and saw what I had been given.”

Neil then took to social media to find out who the kind-hearted youngster was so he could thank him directly.

Neil said: “The ‘Leek Community’ Facebook page was instrumental in tracking down the maker and was necessary as the child had left their gloves in the bag with the gift.

I wanted to return them in case they were a favourite or only pair.

As I said, we often receive small tokens of appreciation at Christmas but this one was out of the normal.

Clearly someone had spent creative time and effort on this and he now has pride of place in my home. He is absolutely lovely.”

Neil has since thanked the young boy who gave him the knitted Lollipop Man, as well as the child’s mother who had knitted it.
