Dave Rattray

Dave Rattray

Dave was the instigator of the Sawley Before and After School Club. He decided that something was needed in the area as he struggled to find any available and affordable childcare for his two daughters. He had the idea of a before and after school club and enlisted the help of a lady called Miranda, Surinder, and Lisa. Together they created the club with the aim to create a fun and friendly place that children would want to attend. Even though Dave is no longer a Director of the business, without his vision and determination the club would not exist today.
