CEO Pauline Morgan was thrilled when Jayne applied for the post. ‘Jayne has a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to this role and is an asset to the management team.’
Colleague Jade Levesley who is Specialist Play Lead at The Hamlet had nothing but praise for Jayne and the work she does at The Hamlet, “Her guidance is invaluable is always ensuring the best for the children, young people and families we support! Thank you Jayne for all that you do.”
Family support worker and parent Kelly Eastman presented Jayne with a huge bouquet of flowers to congratulate her, “Jayne was the first person I met when Noah had his first session in the pre-school at The Hamlet. I was so nervous and she took us around the building and showed us the ball pit and the sensory room. She just put me at ease instantly. Over the years she has always been one of my go to people when I don’t know which way to turn, she always offers the best advice. It’s the same working with Jayne, I know I can go to her with literally anything and she will always point me in the right direction.”
Parent Teresa Goldie whose son Freddie turned 18 last year and has since moved on from Children’s Service had this message for Jayne, “Freddie and I would like to send a big congratulations to Jayne for becoming the centre manager. She is an amazing lady who always greets you with a smile and likewise offers a shoulder to cry on if needed. Through all the years Freddie attended The Hamlet we felt looked after and in good hands and that was down to Jaynes kind and caring natures. She will always be thought very highly of in our family. We are all so pleased for her.”
In this turbulent and uncertain time there was no doubt that Jayne was the right person to lead the Children’s service, offering a safe, happy and stable environment for our children and families and her staff.
Jayne had this to say in response to becoming manager, “The Hamlet has become a huge part of my life over the last few years, I have met some amazing children, families, staff and supporters.
The most rewarding part of my role is making a difference to all we support. I would not be where I am today without the support of everyone who is part of the Hamlet from Senior Management, to my amazing staff team, the children and their families, they have taught me so much.
I am looking forward to leading the Children’s service, providing a high quality preschool, short break playschemes and family support services. I am also excited by the prospect of developing new services as we adjust to the forever changing needs of the children and young people with disabilities living in Norfolk.
Thank you again, to everyone who continues to be part of the Hamlet. It is a privilege to continue this journey with you.”
