Committee

Grindleford and Eyam Playgroup Management Committee

The pre-school’s committee are the trustees of the GEP charity and they each use their particular skills to help improve the pre-school for the staff, volunteers, families and most of all the children. Together, they are also a friendly face and point of contact for parents and members of the public. Our current committee is made up of parents old and new plus volunteers from the community. Below is a little introductory paragraph from a couple of our members so you can see that anyone can join!

Hello, I’m Nell, this is now my second year as a Committee member, and my first as Chair. I joined the committee as I wanted to support playgroup with the wonderful work they do and give something back. I have three children, Oscar (10), Bertie (7) and Percy (3). Percy currently attends playgroup and Bertie attended before leaving to start school. All 3 really enjoy coming and joining in the holiday clubs and family forest school. Oscar and Bertie now attend Great Hucklow Primary School.
I work as a School Business Manager at Edale C of E Primary School and I am also a Governor at Great Hucklow School. I previously worked as a childminder, having experience of early years childcare and level 3 qualification.
If you see me around then please feel free to say hi and if you ever want to discuss anything relating to the playgroup and your child’s care then I’m always available for a chat.

Hi, my name is Ruth I am 40 and have lived in Eyam my whole life, I live with my partner Ian who runs the Miners Arms in Eyam, with our son Louis, 2, who attends Grindleford and Eyam playgroup on a Friday. He loves taking part in the amazing activities on offer and enjoys the play time outside. I myself work as a lecturer in Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy studies at Buxton and Leek College. I have been there 22 years after training myself there, so have seen many students qualify and go on to achieve great things within the industry. In my spare time, I enjoy spending quality time with family and creating lots of adventures with Louis.
