As if raising children and working isn't enough...

Joanne Vickers is facing another monumental challenge.

As Chairperson of the Cooper's Edge School Parent Community Group, Joanne has won the contract to create a Primary School for the new build village of Coopers Edge.  And the task before her is no poor relation to what she's done so far in order to get the contract.

Using all her resources and contacts, going up against other schools and professional outfits that do this kind of thing for a living, meant a massive undertaking, but such is Joanne's passion to create the ideal school for her own children.

The next and very vital phase is getting the building project off the ground.  One of the other mums on the committee Jude is heading up that part and told us what's involved and what it means to her.
