ST HUBERT'S Primary School, Great Harwood, has waved a fond farewell to a governor who is retiring after 40 years.
Miss Jessie Hall MBE, of Allsprings Drive, has been a constant figure at meetings of the governing body over the years and her name has become synonymous with the school.
Hallfield Road, which leads to the main entrance, was named after Miss Hall following a competition held with pupils when the new school opened in 1967.
She is a former deputy headteacher of Mount Carmel High School and a former long-serving Tory councillor who was Mayor of Hyndburn in 1977-1978.
Chair of governors Eileen Hayes said they would miss Jessie's lively contributions at their meetings.
She added: "As president of the local Girl Guides and Brownies and as a fund-raiser extraordinaire, raising thousands of pounds for the scanner appeal and the hospice, she has added status to the school and given the children a wonderful example of how to help others less fortunate."
