The village school was burned down by an arsonist last April, but Mrs Jones has helped the community turn a disaster into an opportunity. The children, aged three to seven, and teachers are currently dispersed across three schools but a state-of-the-art new building opens in eptember. Headteacher Beti Roberts says: "I couldn't have managed without her. Flowers would be our way of saying thank you."
