UNSUNG heroes throughout Denbighshire are being singled out for a special visit from caped crusaders.

As part of Prestatyn events planners and SFX retailers The Garden Den’s ‘Not All Superheroes Wear Capes’ campaign, Ysgol Emmanuel teacher Angela Seward was surprised with some flowers and a certificate by Supergirl at work to say thank you for work with year four pupil Chloe Poundall, aged nine.

The campaign seeks nominations for people in the community who go the extra mile to receive special visits from costumed heroes, with Ms Seward the first recipient following a nomination by Chloe’s, who has additional requirements, brother Ashley Jones.

Mr Jones said: “I think Mrs Seward should be appreciated in her job because my little sister was out of school for seven months at her previous school, but now she has started to settle and make friends.

“For Chloe, everything has to be in a routine and structured. Mrs Seward comes and meets her at reception every morning, she’s her go-to teacher if she has any anxiety or had a bad morning.

“Mrs Seward ensures that Chloe is settles and always goes above and beyond for her, we are so grateful she’s found a teacher she can tell her problems too and feels safe.”

Phil Johnson of The Garden Den said: “Only a few people new what was happening, we took over the assembly and read out what was nominated for and then her name - she had no idea. Supergirl then surprised her out the skies about with some flowers and a certificate.”
