BARBARA ASHLEY, the nursery manager at Bishopswood Day Nursery, has retired.

Staff, parents and children at the nursery in Horsepond Road, Gallowstree Common, held a Forties-style tea party to mark the occasion.

Mrs Ashley started at the nursery eight years ago, bringing with her Peppard Pre-School, which she had run for the previous nine years.

Deputy manager Anna Walker said: “During her time here Barbara has watched Bishopswood pre-school and nursery develop and become an important and integral part of the local community, which makes her very proud.

“She has cared greatly for the children and their families and has always been a huge support for the staff.”

Mrs Ashley said: “I will miss looking after my large ‘family’ here at Bishopswood but it’s time for me to look forward to a new and different life, working fewer hours.”
