I want to first thank the work of Elaine and Beverley our long standing Nursery Nurse reps who were fantastic at the appeal hearing.

I also want to thank all of the Nursery Nurse members for helping provide the much need evidence to help win the Appeal.

The lesson is clear, we need active reps and members in all of our schools.

Now work begins on other Group Appeals.
