Community work earns award for Barnett Wood Pre-School

A visit to Barnett Wood Pre-School in Ashtead gave Dr Llewelyn a golden opportunity to present a High Sheriff Award recognising the school’s work in the community.

Even when times were tough during the pandemic, the school “stood strong”, said one parent, supporting both children and parents “in style with beaming smiles”.

Barnett Wood Pre-School’s dedicated team put children and their families front and centre in all they do. The school is independently run as a limited company with charitable status by directors who give their time voluntarily.

When she arrived, Dr Llewelyn introduced herself to the children, who are between two and four years old and live within the Ashtead KT21 postcode area. She explained the High Sheriff’s role and read them a story.
