Elizabeth Jones has been chair of governors for 27 years at Hawarden Infants School, Flintshire
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."
