Goodbye Mr Wain, Croeso Miss Jones

Wishing Mr Wain all the best for his future plans, which may well involve some working abroad in far flung places.

It’s been great having Mr Wain working at Leighton, and I’m sure he’ll keep us up to date as to where his plans take him.

Miss Jones will join us from January; she has already met our children and some parents; we look forward to her starting 🙂
