Nursery says good bye to Mrs Brown
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.”
