Annual Staff Meeting / Training Day @ Pangbourne
Sunday 30th January 9-4.30pm
This year our guest speaker is Margaret Goldie the Director of Children and Young People for West Berkshire, who has asked to come and share with us what is happening both for the Council, Youth Service and ourselves, so I hope you will be able to attend as this will affect us all.
The Team organising the day have asked me to remind you to do the following for the day, so you can make the day as useful as possible. The AALA inspection and BCU updates are due in March, so we can need to be up to speed.
