Nurs­ery says good bye to Mrs Brown

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A DED­I­CATED nurs­ery nurse has re­tired af­ter 30 years in the role.

Gill Brown played an im­por­tant part in the lives of pupils at the Chal­font St Giles Vil­lage School, where she was also a gov­er­nor for 18 years.

The school held a leav­ing party to say good­bye to her in De­cem­ber last year, at the end of the Christ­mas term.

Parish coun­cil chair­man, Gor­don Pa­trick, was at one of the re­tire­ment par­ties held for her, and said there must have been 30 to 40 peo­ple there.

He said Mrs Brown has been a ‘stal­wart’ of both the nurs­ery and re­cep­tion classes.

His two daugh­ters both went to the school, and Mrs Brown was al­ways there for them, and for many oth­ers as well.

He added: “She’s done a mar­vel­lous, mar­vel­lous job, a fan­tas­tic job. She will be missed.”

Mr Pa­trick said he has known her, both as chair­man and per­son­ally, for ‘many, many years’

“She will def­i­nitely be missed by the staff and the chil­dren them­selves, be­cause she had a fan­tas­tic rap­port with them. She was very very good at her job. She was ap­pre­ci­ated by ev­ery­one.”

He added: “Both my daugh­ters know her and she will be sorely missed and she was a very nice per­son.”

On the school web­site a state­ment read: “This week we have said very tear­ful good­byes to the amaz­ing Mrs Brown.

“She will be greatly missed and leaves us with some won­der­ful mem­o­ries. We are sure she will pop in and visit us.”
