We were so sad to say good-bye to three of our lovely ladies today. Between them, they have spent many years supporting the children and staff at Friars and are now starting their very well deserved retirement. Mrs Bowler has been a super LSA and has had a great impact on the lives of the children she has supported – she is never without a smile and a kind word. Mrs West has greeted parents and tended to the needs of children and staff. She has been an integral part of our office, as well as a brilliant first-aider. Mrs Bridgeman has worked in our kitchen and the children and staff have always had service with a smile. We have valued them all and wish them all a wonderful retirement!
