As playgroup co-ordinator for Church of the Saviour, Ruth Meredith has seen a good number of children grow into adults, including her own. After 18 years in her role, Ruth is now moving on to take up a full-time position with the Anglican Trust for Women and Children.
Affectionately dubbed the ‘Queen of Craft’ by her fellow church members, Ruth is famous for coming up with fun craft activities for kids, for both playgroup and numerous school holiday programmes.
Ruth will be fondly remembered by many in the Bay whose children have been part of the COTS playgroup over the past nearly two decades. A farewell party on her last day of playgroup saw many parents and children, past and present, drop in to thank Ruth for her input to their families over the years.
