ADDING her name to a distinguished list of community heroes this year is a Ripley lady with a heart of gold.

Margaret Butler of Woodside Avenue may be 85, but that does not stop her carrying out her volunteering duties at a town nursery school.

The grandmother has been helping out at the Sandham Lane Nursery for the past six years and is loved by its staff and pupils alike.
