A “fantastic” teaching assistant at Sir Harry Smith Community College in Whittlesey for 38 years has been awarded a British Empire medal in the Queen’s birthday honours.
Felicity Bailey, 76 and known as ‘Fiz’, is to receive the honour for her “amazing contributions to the college over many years” said principal Dawn White.
“Mrs Bailey has made such a positive difference to all of the students. She works voluntarily in the dining hall every day at break-time and lunch-time, and has, for many years, maintained many of the college gardens in her own free time.
“She also makes the floral arrangements and the decorations for the Year 11 Prom and Year 13 Ball.”
Jane Roughley, director of Post-16 education, said: “She is a pillar of our school community and the most positive of role models.
