Val Dewhurst

Val Dewhurst has been our Branch Secretary for fifteen years, and was

one of the original members of the Lancashire Branch. She has demonstrated unstinting dedication and enthusiasm throughout the whole of this time.

Val has been an inspiration to us all and we are very fortunate in being able to hold on to Val's expertise, but under a different mantle, as she has very kindly agreed to take on the role of Accelerated Reader Facilitator.

AR has been adopted by a great many schools, especially so in Lancashire, and Val's personal experience of AR combined with her forward thinking led her to initiate an independent, and successful, AR Users Group which has proven invaluable for networking and the sharing of AR best practice.

It is reassuring to know that this expertise of AR knowledge will now be under our branch's umbrella.

Mrs R Buckland,  Librarian
