  8. Ruth Rolls

    General Committee Member
    I joined the committee in September 2017 following my youngest starting at preschool. I've already seen the wonderful work the preschool does, as my eldest was here for 2 years before starting at Guilsborough Primary School. I've found the staff to be caring, knowledgeable and consistent. I know they are a small charity so I joined to take a small part in continuing the success of the preschool in its early years ambitions.
