Over the years Michelle Collins has won the hearts of the community with her cheery manner and enthusiam in her day-to-day role.

As well as regularly being seen at local events, including the 999 day, she has also helped launch a number of special campaigns.

Last year, she returned to work after a break due to her brave battle with cancer. Even during her break she was raising funds to make life better for cancer patients undergoing treatment for cancer in hospital.
