THE much-loved founder of Blackberry Lane Pre-school, Cowes, Jennie Wells, has been remembered at a special ceremony held at the pre-school to open an outdoor reading area for youngsters. The new area was opened by Jennie’s husband, Cllr Alan Wells, last Wednesday and after cutting the ribbon, he read The Gruffalo to youngsters from the pre-school and Cowes Primary’s reception class.Jennie, who opened the pre-school and dedicated 32 years of service to it retired in July last year but died in November.Pre-school manager Debbie Gibson said: “I remember Jennie showing me around the pre-school during our handover and she commented on how she wished she had had more time to have developed the outside area for the children to enjoy.”Cllr Wells added: “It’s a really great thing that Blackberry Lane Pre-school has done with the new outdoor reading area for the children. Jennie so wanted the children to enjoy outdoor learning and I am sure she would have been so pleased to see it come to fruition.”The area will be used by the pre-school and children from the reception class.Reporter: email@example.com
