I’m writing to show my disgust at the way the staff of Bumble Bees day nursery have been treated by the senior staff at Bees rugby club.
Bumble Bees day nursery is a wonderful, caring environment, extremely well run by Gill Radburn and her loyal team.
I also understand it is a profitable business. On Tuesday at 1pm they were told that the nursery was going into receivership because of the link with the rugby club and that the staff would lose their jobs at the end of the day.
Distraught carers had to tell parents that the nursery was closed with immediate effect, leaving parents panicking where to put their children.
The whole thing is shambolic and disgraceful. Respect should have been shown to the staff who deserved more sympathetic treatment and some notice should have been given to parents. There is no excuse for this treatment.
Finally I would like to thank Gill and all the carers at Bumble Bees for the fantastic work they have done. ( I would have loved to have told them this in person!).
