Facebook Memories 11 June 2019
My “Personal Experiences” growing up in Rural Jamaica where it takes the Village to Raise a Child help me develop the Resilience needed from an early age to challenge the Social Injustices based on ignorance that were responsible for some of the rejections feeding into my “Childhood Traumas”. The way I was raised by my parents resulted in my old fashioned, values and beliefs, leading to my passion of writing, which is also part of the therapy of Early Intervention Strategies.
Facebook gave me the perfect platform to develop my skills as a keen photographer and writer after returning from my “Family Reunion” in the Summer of 2009. The year 2009 is a significant one in my life and this is the reason I am challenging London Early Years Foundation and their cohorts with the Charter Of Rights. Your Overarching Code For Justice because of the two nervous breakdowns after bereavement and losses in toxic workplaces. For there to be no doubt about my Fight4justice campaign let the Judiciary Of England And Wales And the Criminal Justice System note that CASE DISMISSED by Gloria Cameron MBE is my reference of why Nelson Mandela “The Purpose of Freedom is to Create for Others” relevant in the next phase of my journey with support from the experts.
I have been creating the legacies since joining Social Media, even investing in my own website My Vision and publishing with Google AdWords on G+ from 2012. I created my first YouTube in January 2012 but was so busy giving 100% of my best to LEYF despite the discrimination that caused another meltdown and me deciding I could not deal with any more triggers to my PTSD. But my experiences teach me to be careful of those using my Intellectual Property and Image Rights making me a victim of my VULNERABILITY. Please subscribe to my Various Media to join the “Support Network” am creating for “Breaking Down Barriers” of discrimination where in the UK some BLACK People with DISABILITIES are treated less favourably than an animal. I know because of the two miscarriages of justice and HMCTS hounding me…
Facebook joined LEYF targeting me from 18/9/2015 when access was given to my account. Presently I am blocked out despite having eighteen (18) pages on Facebook. Facebook has become a platform where haters, scammers, trolls, are given access to trigger my PTSD so I am locked out and to wrestle control of my account away from me to cover for LEYF and cohorts ABUSERS. LinkedIn has stolen my account to cover for the perverts in the Early Years Sector and Liz Roberts the editor of the Nursery World Magazine. Twitter suspended my account on behalf of Politicians and LEYF and trolls and haters. But in due course when the truth is revealed about the roles of HMCTS and the CPS and the CJS, I might be dead. But the Daily Express columnist stated, “Tech Don’t Lie”.
I contributed to the Daily Express Mental Health Crusade. I self-referred to the NHS Occupation Health Service after the death of my brother and was passed fit to resume work. I was a participant in Dr. Maria Hudson’s research paper “The Experience of Multiple Discrimination” recommended to ACAS. I was advised to seek counselling to find out why I react the way I do to certain situations by Dr. Laura Crawford after the death of my mother. I did 12 Sessions at the Maudsley. I participated in Mental Health research and is on the website using the gadgets. I participated in Heal-d Diabetes research and in time the world will be informed about those in need of Emotional Regulation Treatment for leaving children at LEYF at risks of developing traumas from the abuse that the ET Panel refused my Additional Witness Statement and Theresa May Government rejected my petition for an inquiry into the Early Years Sector.
I was advised to use my Assignments for my First BOOK by Tutors at Lambeth College
I have been publishing stories on various platforms from I created my website “My Vision and YouTube” in 2012. I joined Social Media in 2009 the year I graduated from the Open University. My publications are integral to my range of reviews. The fact I was a participant in Dr. Maria Hudson’s research paper “The Experience of Multiple Discrimination” in 2010. Is the same year I did “A Voice of a Child” research for the CEO of London Early Years Foundation? I have since participated in Mental Health Research and Diabetes Research. I can be found on the internet participating in fundraising and interviews. My background is Early Childhood Education from Jamaica and can be found on the VMBS and JBSF websites. My husband is 98 years old and I have been writing about stories of interests like meeting Mr Walters who travelled on the Empire Windrush in Brixton. I was page one of ITV News for Windrush 70. I discovered my Primary School Head Teacher Husband fought in the WAR. Listening to BBC Ground Force. We were not taught this as part of the Jamaica School Curriculum. My sons were Cub Scouts. One who was misdiagnosed with multiple disabilities is a Councillor for the Division my brother holds before him. Another son is the Vice Principal of his School. He was a FIFA Referee. My history goes back to great grandparents who were Land Barons in Jamaica.
4th October 2021
To Whom It May Concern
Monday 27/9/2021: In light of recent happenings when I was called by a male sounding voice claiming to be from the University Of East London on the 27th September 2021, I have no alternative but to put on record that I think I am been targeted by people I have no knowledge about linked to the University of East London. Please listen to the person on https://youtu.be/6-Znc7I7izc to find out why Mervelee Myers must make it my business to decolonise the UEL. Because I have on record that I was sent to the HOC Nursery when I raised concerns about the exacerbation and triggering of my Mental Health conditions after the death of my mother.
Tuesday 28/9/2021: Although ET17001 was online I made the decision to go into university to climatise myself with the processes of going out and about again. I had book to go out with the Elephant & Castle HUB Choir and was in such a panic I could not get off the bus. I am not sure if been with people bring on the fear after I have been in Stockholm Syndrome lock down during COVID-19?
I was told by the tutor I am too advanced for the ET17001 she advised me to change to another Module on a Tuesday. She would talk to the Head and get back to me. I am still waiting. Then I see snide comments I know are directed at me. They were not figments of my imagination as will be revealed later.
Wednesday 29/9/2021: I had such a good time at ET7727 and noticed the board with “Decolonising the Curriculum” and take my photos to share my journey as a writer and. Nelson Mandela states, “The Purpose of Freedom is to Create for Others” and I have been doing this since I joined Facebook in 2009. I created my first website “My Vision” and YouTube in 2012. Before the CEO of LEYF sent memo for staff to join Social Media to contribute to her blog. I became a target of Facebook on 18/9/2015 when they gave, LEYF access to my account. I created a Community Hub on Facebook. I was a LinkedIn influencer until my account was stolen by the cyberbullying criminals on behalf of the abusers. Fact Check the Reviews online that the https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2300047-216 refused my Additional Witness Statement. Theresa May Government rejected my petition for an inquiry in the Early Years Sector. I can go on forever, but I will let those concerned like Richard Harty do his research about https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site themselves.
I got home from the UEL and the sight I witness makes me realise how much my husband endured the past seven (7+) years. He was crouched at the window looking through the opening for me. As soon as it gets dark, I have to pull the curtains and I think that is his way of shutting out the threats we faced with the invasion of my home from Winsome Duncan sent the Police to section me from a malicious report on the 30/10/2017 after linking me up with her Employment Barrister Ryan Clement. She was groomed by him to find vulnerable black people for them to scam. Ms Duncan stole my manuscript, published my book without my consent and therefore I have no knowledge of the content. In the night my husband lost his dignity and wanted to cover his shame before allowing me to take over.
Thursday 30/9/2021: I stayed at home and do the cleaning up like I used to do to help my mother during the years when disability impacted on my family. I was the one, as an only girl who was mostly affected. I never had a childhood and developed TRAUMAS.
Friday 1/10/2021: Went into Barclays to realise the SCAMMERS, 3 women stitched me up like Big Boy and the Girl and the Duck. They called the Police on the criminal that the Judiciary Of England And Wales & the Crown Prosecution Service & the Criminal Justice System entrap with Emotional Regulation Treatment. Please check my Facebook Memories 3 October 2017 “For all I know I’m a target when even Criminologists are viewing my profile on https://www.linkedin.com. That’s why I am seeking help to find out what is PAVO.
In a nutshell the Police was called after I was locked in the Tower Bridge branch of Barclays. When the two (2) Ignorant Officers came and realise, they were not dealing with an idiot like LEYF CEO June O’Sullivan they instructed me what to do. I was so stressed out, I did not get back home until late. I was back at the Walworth Police Station that by now had become a place where I did not feel safe, but I prefer to do the right thing or accused again.
I got home and that’s when the UEL is going to make out am responsible for not enrolling. I was sent a PASS which I am using to access UEL. Once again, I must wonder if the UEL have people in Leadership-Management like at LEYF? Refer to Faridah Adeyemo re the UEL https://youtu.be/ZiqtTevadBE to find out why I will unearth the fact about why Richard Harty panicked and kick me out of the UEL.
I will end by saying the ball is in the UEL court and as of now I will be on my guard I will pay them the curtsey to respond to this before going public. Because I have been accepted on the Microsoft Business Project and whatever the outcome, I will benefit. Please tell Richard Harty it is obvious he is a bigot who needs to get involved in British Values. I can give him lessons for free. Or better still do the research about MERVELEE MYERS who was ITV News Page one for Windrush 70. I will also do the same for Barclays for calling the Police on me. What were they expecting for them to come MURDER me? I have enough evidence for Police Officers to be charged with attempts on my life at my home and at Southwark Police Station. The UEL can either work with me or against me, it doesn’t matter as I am a PENSIONER from my time at KINGS College NHS Foundation Trust where I have the first nervous breakdown after the death of my brother.
The choice is the UEL.

Mervelee Myers Reviews 29 December 2019 For Research
I attended Lambeth College 1997-1999 and graduated with BTEC National Diploma CHILDHOOD STUDIES (NUSERY NURSING) July 1999. I was helped into a job at William Wilberforce Lambeth Walk Day Nursery straight after finishing studies by one of my tutors. Of note is the fact, I left with Mervelee Myers was selected, based on progress and achievement, to represent the College’s 1998/1999 students from the area of Childhood Studies: BTEC National Diploma. Lambeth College Awards Evening Clapham & Tower Bridge Centres. Signed by Principal. Date: 6 December 1999. LAMBETH COLLEGE Sharing Success. An Equal Opportunities College.
I could add so much about how I started at https://www.lambethcollege.ac.uk, after witnessing the scene of the Early Years Setting when I was working as a Cleaner at BBC in White City. But since the information can be accessed at GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE, will use my time more wisely. Because I am on a mission via my various WEBSITES to be the person making the sacrifices in breaking down barriers erected by the systems and establishments and individuals from the heights of www.gov.uk to employers like www.leyf.org.uk believing that it is acceptable to ruin careers and destroying lives.
When I started at Lambeth College, I was frustrated with the uncertainty of being a Contract Cleaner, whose life was disrupted from one day to the next. With my HIDDEN DISABILITIES, I needed the certainty of continuity, familiarity, and consistency to lead a life as close to normality as was possible.
If anyone wants to know more about my journey from Lambeth College to my https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site, feel free to type MERVELEE MYERS into SEARCH ENGINE? I would welcome your feedback with a REVIEW. In the meantime, https://mervelee.wordpress.com is CREATING the LEGACIES to stop another person having to go through my experiences from 2004.
Multigenerational Working Approach
Connecting with the local community so families grow together and find their place in a changing world.
I was under the weather lying in bed on Tuesday when I had the chance to watch Horizon – Living with Autism by Professor Uta Frit. This programme was a real eye opener for me as it transported me back to the time, I had my first encounter with getting an insight in autism. This was an article in the Nursery World which I kept to date. I have since gone on to do studies to enhance knowledge and expertise. I realised that because of lack of knowledge children with diverse and complex needs are not getting support via early intervention strategies. Growing up and struggling throughout life with what I call my Hidden Disability that is one of the primary reasons I am so passionate about inclusion. Glad I found this group.
On this day 6 years ago Mervelee Ratty Nembhard
It’s been 1 hell of a week gone by from Monday – Saturday. Most harrowing of all was Thursday morning when I had to call the Ambulance out after I couldn’t revive TOM from his hypo. 1st time since I was diagnosed with Die or Beat Dis (diabetes) that I had to call the Ambulance.
As well as been wracked with concerns, I was feeling a bit Guilty because of events over the past weeks. My PROBLEMS created by sum Low-Life-Evil-Yobs-of-Frustrations (LEYF) resulted in me being Physically, Mentally & Psychologically SICK! Lack of Sleep is creating havoc on my Emotional Health & Overall Wellbeing.
I have sum Wicked-Brats-of-a- Wutless (Bates Wells & Braithwaite) Money Grabbers who are trying to take away my VOICE to thank for sum of these states of affairs. But even thou I am reduced to living from hand to mouth, I am paying my dues… Because sumady, supn or HOS will have to give an account & stand up at the Judgement seat to answer Questions why these things can continue!
I’ve been up since the COD (Crack of Dawn) & need to do sum WORK. Remember when I used to study & have Live-Lines to meet…
I told my Counsellor on Friday at the Mad House Hospital (Maudsley) that them send me, hoping to say I am INSANE… That I decided to take back control of my Life. Instead of being ANGRY, feeling Sorry for myself… I am going to use that Anger creatively to Fight4Justice for I & all the others who were unjustly Persecuted… Living in Fear & unable to move on… I have no intentions fi guh nyam outa Garbage Pan… Nor guh back a JA, MAAH (Mad As A Hatter) to please no-Baddy who don’t know GOD!
Found 1 of my OTM (Old Time Men) on SM last night & send him a text. He said he was watching Chelsea get beat up by Bournemouth & then he going to cook dinner 4 his Baby Son. Good thing I’d decided to hang up, tun ova & tun dung from way back, now any1 of those age is my GC (Grand Child). It’s good to be REMEMBERED!!!
So now I tek mi exit from SM until I sort sum UB (Urgent Business). Later shall be Greater, even Greater than Ms Rachie Grater Cakes. Shalom Kings & Queens. I want to finish my work b4 22nd December so I can celebrate mi WB BD (Wash Belly Birthday) in style!
From the days of Slavery our 4-Parents were sold out by their Tribespeople out in Africa… Today nutn has changed especially amongst di Low-Class-Gutless JAMAICANS in Foreign Lands who will sell out dem fellow Country-Folks 4…? Case not Dismissed yet as in Ms Gloria Cameron’s Case… Mine just a begin. Mrs Gloria Cameron CASE DISMISSED HANSIB.
The Fear Factors
Listen to Mr Chester Pinder at https://youtu.be/2nO59HdxL-S giving his insights about the impacts of the discrimination on both my husband and I to understand the fear factors affecting me. I grew up fearing being sick and facing any forms of disabilities that can lead to suffering of any kind. This is because of the personal challenges I experienced which led to the traumas I developed from my father was stricken with Parkinson’s disease. My grandma had 2 strokes, the first altered her speech and although she recovered the fact my son was diagnosed with multiple disability of being deaf and dumb. And me getting blamed for him not talking might have caused me to be trying to compensate to my older son, whilst not realising my preferential treatment affected my younger son. In later life my older son abandoned me, and my younger son is the one picking up the pieces. This is the reason I want to celebrate Valdin Allan Legister for the person he has become despite the challenges. I will do him the honour of writing another book about how his grandmothers have influenced his life. And how he paid me the biggest compliments saying he has inherited everything that made him who he is from me.
Dealing with the stigma of Mental Health
Hi Mr Jeory
I have been following the Mental Health campaign in the Sunday Express over the past weeks with keen interests. This matter is of grave importance to me because of personal experiences I’ve encountered throughout my relatively short life. The reasons I am making contact is to congratulate the team on taking up the fight for people who have been faced with Mental Health issues and do not have any forms of sounding board to air our circumstances and situations in dealing with conditions that are considered as TABOO.
Maybe if I share a brief account of my own personal experiences you will begin to understand why I have become a sceptic of all gift wrapped packages. From an early age I was confronted with the tragedy of witnessing my dad’s decline which lasted for over ten years. He had Parkinson Disease along with some other health conditions. However, it was the Parkinson that caused our family the most concerns as it affected every aspects of the family welfare. I can recall the shakes at the beginning, until his total loose of mobility and everything else that is eventually destroyed as a result of the deterioration in his health. As a teenager I began to question my faith, asking why my dad who had lived and served God had to suffer so much. The onus was left on my poor mum to take on the reigns of responsibilities that was once my dad’s as well as her own job as a mother. In the end my mum was faced with caring for my dad and mum who died within a month of each other. My granny eventually succumbed to one of her many strokes.
Imagine my own devastations when I realised my dad’s condition was hereditary, and from an early age I began to get some of the signs and symptoms of Parkinson Disease. To cut a long story short, I immediately have to alter my life, and I know I was prevented from achieving my full potential because of my DNA over which I had no say. Therefore, with time I learnt to adapt to my condition and refused to become a VICTIM and have always been aware of my Limitations. However, I recognised I had problems with my family situations and was only able to give it a name DEPRESSION after coming to the UK and decided to take up studies to improve my prospects of securing gainful employment to make a better life for myself. I always joked about the fact that I managed to pick up all the defects from both sides of my FAMILY.
Now I have seen in today’s edition about the role expected of workplaces in supporting their employees who have experienced Mental Health. However, my arguments are totally against sharing your predicaments with your employers as this can be used to ones detriment and place a Label of Deficit Model that is used to discredit a person when one is at their most VULNERABLE. At this point am talking from personal experiences when I Self Referred because I was concerned about matters affecting my work, and for which I needed some answers. This was used against me, and in the long run when I needed the support of my GP because I had told him about my Parkinson’s Disease, I was given a kick in the teeth. This caused so much havoc in my life that at one difficult period I thought I would have been swept overboard by the tide of upheavals and emotional baggage I was left to deal with. My unfair treatment further exacerbated my DEPRESSION that I found it hard coping with life. Even thou I had swallowed my better medicine and moved on I am reminded daily of these unpleasant events in my life because they keep reoccurring at work. I have been placed on a system where I am been Networked against, so I cannot break the mould and move on. To make matters worse am now been penalised in my job for doing the work am paid for, and they try to get information about people so that they can used it against them. I can recall when I first came to the UK a friend told me that in the UK never tell others the TRUTH as they can’t deal with truths only lies and am beginning to see the reality only after too late to my detriments. My life has been turned upside down because of who I am, as well as my knowledge, values and beliefs and I feel trapped without seeing a way out of my dilemma.
Although I will continue following your campaign, I can’t help but say I will continue to hold my opinions and keep them to myself, find solutions to my DEPRESSION without getting my employers involved. Anything you say can come back to haunt you at a later date when you least expect it. Even thou I have no one to share my concerns with I would prefer die than involve people at work. This is because when concerns are raised, they are shoved under the carpets by inexperienced Managers who lack knowledge, values and beliefs to deal with those concerns. Fore and foremost US older employees are treated with disrespects whilst facing all kinds of DISCRIMINATIONS over which we cannot do anything for fear of been LABELED. Since I do not have a voice and have no one to talk to I will be brave and stop myself from becoming a VICTIM by finding my own remedies. The one good thing about this is I am a very resilient person and refused to give up without a fight, but I won’t make the same mistakes again by challenging Social Injustices and Inequalities. Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but…
Thanks for being my sounding board as this means so much to me especially when am at a low ebb in my life trying to stay in the UK coping with the decline in my mum’s health.
Depression 14th July 2016 Updated 3 July 2019 by Mervelee Myers
Today I have to tackle a subject that is close to my heart, “DEPRESSION and the spectre of DISABILITY” – Mental and Physical. The reasons are many as I have had to cope with my “Hidden Disability” that were eventually triggered and exacerbated into this full blown Depression over the years. Today 3rd July 2019 as I am updating this, https://www.google.com has decided to be exacerbating my disabilities to provoke me into acting out of character, I believe. I have Google AdWords since May 2012 when I started with https://www.myvision.org.uk. The advice from www.healthmanltd.com to get Cognitive Behavioural Therapy CBT to find out why I react the way I do to certain situations have certainly been paying dividends. I will never be cured, but I know I am having a better quality of life.
Yesterday I was paralysed with all the symptoms of Depression resulting from events over which I have no control. Before people start to judge me about issues for which they have absolutely no knowledge. I would entreat them to take a little time to be in my shoes for just a second of my traumatised life. Getting CBT at www.slam-iapt.nhs.uk/southwark, the Maudsley Hospital. Is just a stone’s throw from where I used to work when I was hounded from 2004 when I contacted www.crb.gov.uk or www.disclosure.gov.uk about my concerns at Mapother Day House Nursery? In 2006 I had to go to visit family in the USA to get away from the situation that was causing me to feel anxious.
But I was keeping http://unison.org.uk/ updated about what was happening to and couldn’t believe what they did to me. Some might think Depression is the preserve of the Celebrity, Rich and Famous. However this is a total myth perpetuated by the Media and my husband Daily www.express.co.uk of choice. But what really gets to me is the fact that I contributed to the Mental Health CRUSADE and shared my experience. I was a participant in www.acas.org.uk resulting from my experiences at Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust 2004 to 2008 when I resigned with a nervous breakdown after the death of my brother. The Celebrities are only knowledgeable about how to use their Mental Health Conditions to benefit their recovery and make money on the side.
They have the Media and Tabloid Press to help them market themselves to a wider audience. As I learned via studies, those who equip themselves with the knowledge about any of life’s issues are the ones who reap the most benefits for themselves and families, MQ: Transforming mental health www.mqmentalhealth.org/Mental-Health/Mental-Illness. That’s why these days I am making it my business to be my own Self-Promotor as no one else is that interested in what’s best for the other individual Policy Studies Institute and Acas. Dr Maria Hudson (2012) University of Essex Research Report: The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds. My younger brother Ervin Nembhard, puts it precisely when he told me to make sure I look out for and do what’s best for me.
Without a shadow of a doubt, I can see the sense in what he told me a few weeks ago. These days because I am making my implicit knowledge explicit going about taking part in research and doing training for https://fight4justiceadvocacy.business.site I know I have to make a choice about how I go about providing a kind of support network for others that was not there for me and my sons when I was not knowledgeable enough to help them with certain things. Those little things that could make so much difference in life. For example when www.jamaicaobserver.com/western/news can write about my son, it’s no different from what http://www.gov.uk/tribunals/employment/claims/responding done to me on two occasions. Presiding over another miscarriage of justice seems like nothing to those who abuse their power of authority.
Yesterday I had another Melt-Down as I just could not deal with the number of pressures directed at me from every corners, LEYF Nurseries. I don’t know what I have done to deserve all the bad things that have been happening to trigger the Depression as soon as I think I am in control. I know getting into a state is not good for “mine or my husband’s Disabilities and Progressive Health Conditions”, but when the “Black Dog – Depression” attacks, I have no powers to ward off the attack and just have to go with the flow. Mine and my husband’s entire lives are affected. I can’t eat, sleep or function properly to carry out normal day to day activities. Being his “Carer is detrimental to his overall Health and Wellbeing” if I am in a Depressive State and unable to care for him.
If my husband starts worrying about me, like what happened over the past year from October 2014 to date, then there is every likelihood he starts getting “HYPOS” regularly. If I am unable to perform my “Statutory DUTY of Care”, I am condemning both of us to sufferings that I refuse to think about owing to my “Traumatic Childhood into Adulthood” that changed the course of a promising life. That’s why I probably developed the “Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD) behaviours” as coping mechanisms? I use whatever interventions I can muster to get me going. As I have been letting it be known, I Cuss Bad Wuds, like a Trooper to alleviate my “Stress as a form of Therapy”. Barring that I might end up provoked and frustrated into Committing Criminal Offences over the years Employment Tribunals London South.
Worse still I would not be able to cope, ending up in the Slammer like my brother. The sad thing about my brother ending up and DYING in Prison, is that he never has the sort of resilience like I do. So, he did what he thought was best at the time and went to church to wait for the authorities. My only hope is he had time to reflect on the circumstances that dictated the decisions he had to take, he became remorseful and forgiving for what he was provoked into doing. I on the other hand will never commit a Criminal Act unless they Criminalise Cussing Bad Wuds? When I feel down and out and unable to cope, I go into Bad Wuds Cussing Mode so as not to let the “Devil use me to do his will”, Passive Aggression.
If anyone want to claim responsibilities, LEYF Nurseries, for my Bad Wud Cussing Modes, they are welcome as I don’t pick, chose nor refuse when I lose control. The things that set me off at any given times is the way matters affect me about the little things… Like not knowing why I am being singled out for “DISCRIMINATION of the magnitude that happened to me on 2 separate occasions in the UK”. Last week after getting myself out of a spell of Depression, I was so happy with my achievements. I went out into the public domain to celebrate what is good about being British, British values. I was brought back to earth with a bump with a letter on which my whole life depends. This letter contains information about whether I have “a roof over my head or is going to find myself homeless” again.
I dropped everything to get the matters sorted, because when you have been in certain situations, you don’t want to revisit them. I was at the Job Centre Tuesday and Wednesday Department for Work and Pensions – DWP, when instinct told me that the information, I was receiving was not addressing the questions needing answers. I got on the telephone. But I have to be “Assertive and when my Disability – Chronic Anxiety is triggered” this bring out the Passive Aggressive in me. Sorry folks I need to go do my Research about how not to be “Passive Aggressive” to anyone. I just discovered that along with all the “Lovely Descriptive Narratives” used to describe me by BIB & #LEYF, I am Passive Aggressive. Poopa Jesus if only my Dead Parents would have known what was to happen to their one GIRL, they might have offered some “Protection from the Grave”?
Sadly, for me, when I studied The Open University, I was told that if you are asked any questions pertaining to your job and you do not know the answers, you should promise to find out from someone in authority who should know. A worker should never tell a parent in my job in the early years sector that they don’t know, promise to find out. These days it is the norms for even those in authority not to know the roles and responsibilities in their “Job Descriptions and Person Specifications”. Hence the reasons I am in the position I have found myself in and prone to full blown Depression. My Hidden Disability –which was exacerbated and triggered into Depression came about only because I am passionate about my work and wanted to do my very best as a result of my Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) behaviours.
The unfair treatments started at King’s College Hospital “Kings Day Nursery Mapother House” where I worked from March 2003 – November 2008. I started studies with the #OU 2004 after I thought I landed what I considered my Ideal Job. I “intended to retire at Kings or return to Jamaica” whichever came first. However, I had no inclinations how my life was to change over the next couple of years, despite me doing everything I thought to protect myself. Part of enhancing knowledge, involved me applying and promoting best inclusive practice from studies into the workplaces I was fortunate to be in. I made contributions to enable Kings to become a Beacon of Excellence in Southwark. I was not prepared for the way my life was to change at Kings.
I must admit I am still naïve, trust, and respect and take each and every individual at face value to be genuine with no axe to grind. But “my naivety always seems to be my downfall” each time the HATERS strike. So, KINGS, where my Depression was triggered became a distant memory over the years. Until I returned to South London after 5 years, and it was like I was schedule to relive my nightmare. Only this time the nightmare was worse than the first, and I have to come to terms with accepting who the perpetuators are in this sordid affair. The things that got to me were the similarities in the events and the persons involved. Like at KINGS, I was used and abused, my knowledge confiscated and used for others to accept the accolades and benefit in their career.
Once they got what they wanted by using me to build up their organisation to Beacon Status, then they set about kicking the ladder down to prevent me from climbing and abandoning me. I wouldn’t have minded if they had left me to pick up the pieces and get on with my life. But no, instead they were intent on total Destructions. “I begged, pleaded, bend over backwards and kiss arses, because I knew my situation”, but to no avail. From studies I now learn about transitions that can impact on one’s life and I have learned the hard way to my detriments. The patterns that run in my “transitions are inclusive of sufferings of sicknesses, bereavements after deaths and then being ganged up on and treated unfairly” on more than one occasions because of my knowledge, values and beliefs, Equality Act 2010.
This happened with my Dad who was struck down with Parkinson’s Disease at an early age” – approximately 49 to early 50’s when he was made Redundant from working. Dad lived to the age of 62 years old as “his family witnessed Parkinson Disease stripped him of every shred of Dignity” and made him a shell of his former self. My Uncle Dudley was brutally murdered at his home in Clarendon one Sunday morning was the next to go. We heard of his death on the news in 1976, the year my 1st son Kevin Murray, was born. My uncle Terah, Cardene Chambers dad, who was murdered at his home in St Catherine at the age of 50 years old was next to go. I heard about his murder on the news as well. He was instrumental, helping to bring about the COOP at Bernard Lodge Sugar Company.
Uncle Terah is the 1st of my relative to be buried on the Family Land. I remember every moment of my Grandmother’s actions as if it is yesterday, on the day they brought her son’s body home to be interred in the yard. This led to my “Grandmother being left Broken-hearted, took his death to heart and succumb to one of the strokes” which took her out of her suffering after 2 years. Grandma and Dad died a month of each other February and March of 1980. When Dad died it was more of a relief to his family than anything else. My brother died at the age of 37 years old in 1994, but I did not get to attend his funeral. He made all his funeral arrangements, and I was able to contribute to that financially if not in person.
The thing about it, is my brother knew about his eminent demise and made all his plans. On reflections that was “brave of him as he kept going saying he was going to live forever, even when he knew he was dying”. Maybe I would have been “Cussing Bad Wuds about being cheated out of life”, at the age when I have such great plans to transform the lives of others? There was the case of my “other brother who died of CANCER”, within 3 months of a 3- 6 months life span diagnosis. That was one of the most difficult periods of my life because of the upheavals and turmoil contrived by some unscrupulous people with whom I work and their cohorts in a toxic environment. I asked for support resulting from studies. This was viewed as threats of the incompetence of some in authorities from some quarters.
When the same patterns of behaviours that happened at KINGS started at BIB – Myers v LEYF, not long after I returned from burying my MOTHER. I was not overtly worried as I thought that these things happened but once they get to know the “Jolly me, who is Mervelee Ratty Nembhard – Mervelee Myers” things would fall into place. The rest of the story is history for those who have been keeping up to date. I have been thrown into full blown “Depression, have a Nervous Breakdown, had Counselling” and being trying to get back control of my life. But my life has not been easy and last night I had a relapse. So I am getting threats from left, right and centre and I need to do my RESEARCH about someone’s Intellectual Property before too long.
But not to worry I will get there as I have weathered many storms in my – 60 years on God’s earth. These days I don’t take nothing or no one for granted because people are Fickle. I prefer to do things my way so when I “CUSS to help me be in control of the DEPRESSION”, so I don’t have to commit Criminal Acts, I don’t have to seek anyone’s approvals. If anyone want to “disown me and keep their distance as some have done, they are welcome and good luck and good riddance” to them. If they can do without me, I can do without them too and one less thing for me to “Stress about”. My PARENTS to whom I owe any obligations are DEAD and my children can stand on their two feet and be independent of me.
On a sound and positive note, I still have my “Best Friend who understand when I explain about my Melt-Downs”, and will not judge me, even if she has to promise to get the “Jaize to wash out my Mouth”? I found another Ally in a Friend who knew me in my “Teens as a Care-Free, Feisty, and Happy Go-Lucky Girl” who I have forgotten I ever was. I am more than grateful for the rediscovery as I am having my morals boasted by this person who probably knows me more than how I remember myself in those carefree days. I know I can rely on someone to be there to tell me to “cry if I feel like crying, pray when I am not too cross with the GOD that keeps putting me in these Soul-Destroying situations and Cuss Bad Wuds” if that help. I know I don’t have to pretend to be someone I am not, and I am more than grateful.
Therefore, when I am having my “Melt-Downs because I am trying to be in control of the DEPRESSION”, I know I can’t afford to be taken out. Because I have my TOM to think about, and he is affected by the same things that affect me. He is at the stage where the least thing will affect him, and I don’t want to have anything on my conscience because of something I should have done and didn’t do because I am DEPRESSED. So, my Fight4justice is for me but more for Tom because he has had to suffer for no fault of his own.
Tomorrow I dust myself off and start all over again. If one has not been in a situation where they experienced any sort of debilitating conditions, then they won’t know what I am trying to say. I told the Counsellor that I don’t mind becoming a Case Study in my Fight to cope with DEPRESSION, if it helps one person to understand and come to terms with the Demons that try to take over and Destroy Lives, Andy Harrington – Jet Set Speaker. My life has always been an open book, and no one needs worry about me claiming anything I share to be my Intellectual Property as I am yet to find out what that is. I am too busy trying to get my life back and beat down the barriers of Ignorance http://www.MerveleeConsultancy.uk, that can cause others to be bias, judgemental, and stereotypical and willingly label others because they are lacking knowledge.
For me WRITING is a form of Therapy that I am using to tell my Stories. As I am sharing my life experiences, about how one can be affected by matters such as Disability, Love, Caring, Not Caring, living a Full-Filling Life and just being thankful for the small mercies and blessings that we have been granted by GOD. Yes, for anyone wondering, I have a Love/Hate relationship with the GOD whom I don’t seem to understand and know enough about. The GOD that allows the terrible things that happened and led to the DEPRESSION. But yes, I sometimes view this as another way GOD is using me to make a difference.
I have to take that round about journey to get to where GOD intends me to end up?
Tribunals. Upon researching MERVELEE MYERS, I was surprised with my findings. I am included in Dr Maria Hudson of Essex University Research Paper: The Experience of Discrimination on Multiple Grounds.
This research was carried out for the Policy Studies Institute. It was used by Acas and I know for a fact that this was the reasons that Claimants were charged Fees to take their Employers to Court. But despite the recommendation put in place, nothing has changed. Because I had to represent myself again when another Union sold me out. My Racism claims were strike out after been sent back for considerations, by a Judge, I will be researching asap.
The DWP cause me no ends of grief and I am still waiting for my claims re Universal Credit to be sorted out. Then HMRC got in the act breaching the Data Protection Act 1989 and claiming they did not know about me.
I have been in Contact with the 2 PM and written Open Letters to the Daily Express, Bates Wells Braithwaite, VOICE the union, by the way they still charging me fees.
Resulting from the discrimination, including blacklisting and networking, I am unable to get a job. It is beneath my dignity to be forced to live on benefits, so I am empowering myself to start my own business. I am investing in myself and is about to publish my first book. Writing and photographing are two of my hobbies that I am hoping to use to kick-start brand Mervelee Myers as an entrepreneur.
My Roles at LEYF: EYFS Coordinator, SENCO, Multigenerational Working Approach Facilitator
On this day 5 years ago Mervelee Ratty Nembhard is celebrating success.
Daily Express Page 21: Sheridan quits royal show after dad dies. I have had so many bereavements in my life that I have spoken & written about that I am very versed about #Compassion. I am far different from LEYF Nurseries that don’t have a clue about what is written in the #Contract I signed on 7.10.2009. It was never reviewed nor updated until I was forced to resign on the 27.9.2015. Then they claimed they have no #FILE, so no Data Protection Act 1998. Now my Fight4justice will have to see about that?
Page 24: No witch-hunt, insist police probing Heath. Until you have heard my story, don’t believe a word from the #Establishment & the #Systems. They are operating a clique with big organisations like LEYF Nurseries. I have all the evidence as part of my #DefensivePractice.

Promise to my Brother on his Death Bed
Since today might be my last before I have to take a Facebook break, I have heard a voice telling me to make the most of my opportunities. Once more I would like to acknowledge the fact of my #Achievements with my Fight4justice campaign against LEYF Nurseries with the support I have been given by #SocialMedia & Facebook for Windows in particularly. After today, I will be focussing on doing my #Highlights!
UEL Student Wellbeing Service
My name is MERVELEE MYERS, and I want to say how much the Elephant & Castle HUB has been part of my journey from the time I joined and Choir. I have engaged with other groups at the HUB, but the Choir has given me the chance to use singing as Therapy during the time I was going through a difficult phase in my life.
I am proud of my biggest stage performance at the Globe Winter Festival. Although I have been in the media and on TV before performing with the Choir take precedent. I can link this with my parents meeting at a Wake Night singing and Cupid strike and they spent the rest of their lives together.
Even when Mama Lou develop dementia and she forgot her only daughter, you could reach her with singing. I have not participated since COVID-19, but I keep informed via the WhatsApp group. I am back, but University means I might not get to attend regularly. But I am a lifelong member of the Choir. Just need to know if I am an Alto or a Tenor.
Thanks for the support during my time of inactivity.
The Changes Started Happening At London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) 2013
Incidents with Mervelee Myers 23/3/2015
As far as my recollection goes on this incident, I had shared information from I started at BIB that I intended to set up a Forrest School Themed outdoor space with Mud Kitchen. On the day in question, I’d come back from sick leave and started cleaning up the outdoors space after sharing this fact with everyone. I’d learned from prior experiences not to just go ahead and introduce any ideas without first getting clearance from my manager. Because I was on a late shift, I’d given 1 hour of my time each morning to clear the garden of the rubbish that piled up over the years. I’d spend 1 hour in the garden and be inside in time to start my shift at 10.00 am. I had collected resources from Nursery World Show February 2015 to help me with setting up the project.
When Jyoti approached me about why I’d signed in early I explained to her about working in the garden (see photographs). However, it is normal for me to come in early or leave late when I have deadlines to meet. Case in point when the area manager Hilda Miller asked me to update key child’s Learning Journey that she is using as a project (see photographs). I am not a stickler for time like others to go home especially since transferred to work closer to home. I have addressed this matter elsewhere so just to clarify some points. I noticed how everything is timed specific to the last details and this is so totally wrong, but in order to collect evidence to get me sacked the manager Lynne Kelly briefed everyone. If the records of evidence collected so far are checked, you will see a pattern.
I was promised copy of minutes of a meeting with LK, Remi and me which never materialised, even LK said I needed to know who were making allegations. Since Jyoti didn’t know the proper procedures because even after I’d gone through the basics with her from, she started in December 2014. She still did not grasp what was expected of her in her Job Description. I was the one who advised the agency staff at about 6.08 pm that she could go home, and it was after then I put the shutter down, so I am not too specific about the time except it was after 6.00pm.
After getting a little frustrated with Jyoti because no matter how long I went through LEYF working practices with her and she failed to understand what was expected of her. I asked the manager who was responsible for training her and this was after I told her to ask to go and shadow another deputy. On one occasion when I gave her information about the settling in procedures for her new key child, she told me I have to go and asks LK, “I don’t know because I did not have an induction?” Yet after 5 years of working with LEYF, I am expected to sit around and do nothing whilst others like Jyoti who is new to LEYF takes forever to grasps the basics about working practices. Then they have the audacity to talk about I am dismissive of AUTHORITY, whose authority might I ask?
This is nothing new to me because when I went to LSN, I just went in and did my job from past experiences. Another young lady came after me (Katie – 20 yrs old) and the 1st week I saw her distraught and upset threatening to resign because she was blamed for an accident. I advised her not to resign because it wouldn’t look good on her CV. I begged her to persevere so it shows how she can develop resilience under trying circumstances in the workplace. She took my advice and hang on and is now pursuing her dreams studying and working.
Another recruit came to LSN (Rebecca aka Becky) and the next week she tendered her resignation because she had no induction and did not have prior experiences of working in the field to fall back on. She sends a report to Head Office but as is the norms, things get swept under the carpet.
One of the agency staff Ricky from Protocol complained to CO about inappropriate practices on the 10th March 2015. They told her there was to be an investigation, but the investigations was about the chef. The same chef who got suspended because she did not agree to what LK & BIB & some of LEYF CO team were doing to me.
Gloria ended up paying the price and I feel totally responsible for this state of affairs. Then LEYF used the Policy & Procedures to GAG me so I cannot talk about what is happening to me. Even when I went to the doctor and he advised me to contact the Union, I wasn’t sure about this. LK made sure Ricky did not come back to the setting, because I hear Ricky talking to her on the 11.3.15, we had speech & language training. She told Ricky the nursery would be quiet, but I saw a new agency staff come in, and by this time the children got used to seeing Ricky in the setting. I understand this is the way LK operates, if agency staff raised concerns, she makes sure they never come back to work at BIB.
I beg to differ on this matter as I am always doing my fair share and extra. However, everyone seems to have a problem with the way I capture my evidence in order that I can document, record and collate information to carry out my Job Description. If in doubt check the Learning Journeys, EYFS Curriculum Planning, Worry & IEP Forms, etc. I asked the manager when I started at BIB to install a computer to enable me to do my job because my writing is not the best due to my Parkinson disease. Unlike others who made things up as they go along, I write little notes as aid memoirs when I am ready to document.
I spent my lunch time typing up those notes whilst they are fresh in my memory. There are times when I come in early or leave late depending on my shift just to get work done as I am a stickler for ensuring I do the best I can for the job I get paid to do. When Jyoti did come to the conclusion that she has stated in the last paragraph? Was this after I’d gone through showing her my practice as a LEYF employee with 5 years services (see Letter). At my interview, I knew I’d got the job before it was completed, and Neil King was telling everyone in the office how good I was.
I’d studied and gained my Foundation Degree & other qualifications before I started at (Westminster Children Society – WCS now London Early Years Foundation – LEYF) because I wanted to be a graduate by the time, I was 50 years old. I started at Fitzrovia where I was given a fight by the manager Maria Goncalves and area manager Maria Freeman because I stood up for my rights to do my job without being harassed, bullied and intimidated which I considered discriminations. I realised from then that there was a culture of discriminations.
But because of prior experiences which resulted in me being blacklisted and networked against, I just had to do the best I could to keep my job. I had lost track of the number of interviews I’d attended without any success. I was relieved to be transferred from Fitzrovia, when a former colleague I’d worked with at Lambeth Walk Day Nursery Joelle Lax vouched that I am a good worker. Luton Street became a safe haven for me as the manager Julie Weise saw my potentials and empowered me to get on doing what I am good at. I covered in so many of LEYF nurseries I have lost tract of some of them before coming to BIB and if there were any complaints about my practice, I was not informed.
Has Jyoti been made aware of the information I shared with the manager about the impact her treatment is having on my health and wellbeing? When I gave the documentations to LK, she told me she put it in my file. I was wondering what use it will be in my file if she is not reading it and talking to Jyoti about the impact on me. (Refer to Jyoti Sharma’s review of LEYF Nurseries the ET Panel rejected my Additional Witness Statement – 8/12/2021).
Why was my health issues not passed on?
There are records of me telling LEYF about my Parkinson condition initially on my file because I told them at the interview. Later I put the same in writing, because although my Parkinson’s is not diagnosed, I’d always fill forms saying I have a disability.
In fact, I came for an initial visit before my actual start date on the 23rd July when I was informed, I’d be working with Carol in the Baby Room. My health issues were not as easily sorted as Lynne is saying here, because she keeps insisting that I have to work in the Baby Room when I started because this was where she has the vacancy. I told her I am willing to start in the Baby Room until the matter is sorted as she claimed she was not aware of my health conditions. I told her if she wasn’t able to sort the matter out, I was willing to contact Central Office myself because they are aware of my situation.
In the end Rumi was moved to the Baby Room and me in the preschool. However, it took ages for my file to be transferred from Luton Street and after attending a few occasions and couldn’t get it I gave up. One of the excuses given for me not being able to collect when I visited was the manager had gone to CO for meeting and took the keys to the cabinet with her. Another time I was told she is away on annual leave and took the keys with her and I questioned that kind of practice when it comes to aspects of the EYFS Welfare requirements. I think after I decided I wasn’t making another trip to LS, they were scanned over to Lynne Kelly?
The 1st time I met the area manager Hilda Miller was when she and LK called me to a meeting to say a parent had complained about a comment, I’d made to a child soon after starting. Fact of the matter I recalled very well what happened. The children were taken out on an outing and when the child came, she didn’t want to come to the preschool room with Remi & myself (who are new). The child was taken into the Baby Room with Carol who is a familiar member of staff. When I said no conversation had taken place HM said it was up to me to introduce myself to parents, etc…
I had done that in writing on the board (see copy). Being new to the setting I understand it would take a little time to form close bonds with the children and work in partnerships with the parents effectively. The parent later told me she had raised concerns before she got to know me, and I reassured her I understand and HM & LK spoke to me. I think from beginning it was seen that I am an assertive person who stands up for my rights as long as I can justify my practice and I was resented for this. This only came about because I empowered myself via studies and trainings so is not afraid to challenge others who are not prepared to work within the guidelines of the EYFS Welfare Requirements.
I can’t identify myself from this statement from LK either because although I might have been a bit reserved just coming back from Jamaica after burying my mum in July, I talked about visiting Jamaica 2 times in 2014. I consider myself to be an outgoing and friendly person (see photo that LK took at BIB Xmas Party & Mewe Leaving do). I had not worked in South London since 2009 when I joined LEYF and although I did not go into details, I told LK about my past experiences. LK told me I should not worry because I am with her now and everything would be alright. I only get nervous under extreme situations despite my Parkinson disease, which I have managed to control holistically and with lifestyle changes after I enhanced knowledge.
When did I stopped being proactive?
I introduced my practice working with LEYF where they invested in trainings to BIB. I was the SENCO at Luton Street and I’d had feedback from LEYF that the Westminster Local Education authority was happy with work I’d done. Coming to BIB I realised some of the Policy & Procedures regarding Documenting were not in place, so I set about introducing them to the manager & colleagues. Because although there was information about certain aspects of practices to be found around the setting neither the manager nor the team knew anything about them. I introduced the ECAT forms amongst others when the receptionist Mewe was still at BIB and ask that they look for them on the system. LK said HM brought them in and they were to be implemented after she arranged training with Stella.
I went ahead and do the Worry Form & IEP for 1 key child for whom I had concerns after consultations with LK and the parents when LK told me she was not trained to be the SENCO. I handed it over to LK and all I got was “we have some bright staff in BIB, but I am making some corrections”. I thought LK was very patronising but knowing my situation and being back in South London where I’d had a traumatic experience, I just carried on with the work.
Another important EYFS Welfare Requirement re safeguarding that was not adhered to be the documenting of Accidents/Incidents and when I questioned was told we don’t do it here – BIB. I get the impression that LK was just a figure head who left most things to Benedicte who made the rules in BIB and I am not sure if BS was getting her dictates from HM? There were so many other things that were not done the way I was used to at Luton Street and other nursery I’d covered. After trying to implement and not getting any support, I went ahead and do the work as stated in my Job Description. By this time, I’d given up on going anywhere with my career and working for my PENSION instead.
The small incidents that happened in October – November 2014 was me promoting and implementing LEYF ethos celebrating the CEO vision of multigenerational working (see photos). I did not know at the time that by celebrating Silver Sunday, acknowledging Theresa’s contributions as a former CABRINI worker and now LEYF volunteer that I was offending anyone. I ensured the trend continued with children taking cards home for their grandparents. I was left to do the celebrations by myself as the other staff did not bother to join in. In the end I got LK to come and join in the celebrations when we sang for, she is a Jolly Good Fellow and presented her with the book of cards.
As the manager why did LK and her team not more proactive in promoting and implementing LEYF DNA? Because they don’t consider themselves to be LEYF and HM the area manager gave them the go ahead to be like this. HM told me in no uncertain terms that BIB is her BABY and I wasn’t going to come there and changed anything. Everything I suggested was declined with the saying HM won’t like it and that’s the way HM wants it. So not having a status and being weary from prior experiences I tried to abide by the rules but felt frustrated being disempowered once again.
I have addressed this elsewhere, but I need to clarify LK reasoning. I had no issues with Nicola other than I thought she was prying into my private life so refused to give her information she was seeking. Nicola did not ask me why I was eating a banana in front of the children either. She said I wonder why you were eating the banana meaning she was watching my every move and could have come to find out the reason for me eating the banana. Instead, I asked Nicola to get the children crackers when I realised 1 child might have seen me eating the banana. I did not have the banana in full view either, but in my apron and have tiny bits. Nicola said to me I was wondering, so that meant she had seen me eating the banana and could have intervened before I asked for her help? She did not help anyway and asked me to go get the crackers for the children myself and left the room.
I asked Flavia whose shift was finished to help me, and she did. This incident occurred after LK had sent me home sick and on return to work the next week extracted a tooth which made it hard for me to eat properly. Mindful of my condition and having to deal with my husband who sometimes get hypos, I did not want to have to go through what he went through especially at work. I know myself better than anyone else and I knew how I was feeling why I started eating the banana.
When Nicola came back after I presumed, she went to report to LK and spoke to me, I apologised for eating the banana and asked if she knew I have Diabetes. But it was the way she continued to behave that upset me – you should have asked me to let you leave the room, you should not be eating in front of the children, but who would be looking after the children? And no children saw me eating, I took it upon myself to ask for help to get them something to eat because I knew I was eating. But I realised the stage was set to discredit me from as far back as then.
When I got home and told my husband, he forbade me to take anything else (see photos) flowers from LK home. I keep on insisting LK is a nice lady to him. When we attended the BIB Xmas party and I heard a discussion about Nicola, I made sure not to say anything, purely on the grounds of things I heard she had said about BIB and other LEYF settings she visited. I realised that there was no loyalty to LEYF as a united team instead some like Nicola & Hilda Miller were only about their status in the company. Yet because of my situation and knowing if LEYF did not give me a job I’d lost out on being able to earn a living, has remained loyal and grateful. Instead, I am the 1 who is going through this again?
Since I was told a totally different story at the time and only heard in drib and drabs about what happened at the wedding later, I’d like to spend some time clarifying this aspect of LK report. When LK called me to her office on Monday the 5th January 2015 I could see she was clearly upset. LK said Mewe (receptionist) called her, and she didn’t know I was not happy with the management at BIB. I reassured her and said my only little concern was the banana issue and I’d moved on by then. And I am honest enough to raise any concerns I have with her if I wasn’t happy after the way she welcomed me at BIB.
All I am going to say about the wedding issue here now is when I arrived with my friend a former colleague from my job in South London working for the NHS. There was a conversation in progress with current LEYF and former BIB staff. My contribution to the conversation was to say my opinion of LK had gone down a little bit, but I still consider her to be a nice lady. I recalled sharing why I never said anything at the Xmas party when others were having their say about Nicola.
The only other person who was discussed and of whom I have any knowledge is Rumi who invited us to her wedding. The gist of the conversation was she had to resign from her job at BIB because no one gave her much support. I hardly knew Rumi as I started 23rd July and she finished in December, and some of that time, she was off work sick. I witnessed her in tears on numerous occasions and when I enquired of her health and wellbeing she refused to talk. I could empathise with Rumi because I went through a phase like that too. I appreciated the fact that she thought so highly of me, inviting me to her wedding. Since most of the conversations was about matters for which I had no knowledge before I came to BIB, I just got on with enjoying my hobby of photography and socialising.
Ex Colleagues – Benedicte Story
Any ex-colleagues whom I spoke about would have been those from my former work place Mapother House Day Nursery, Kings College Hospital where my friend still works. I still keep in contact with some of my former colleagues, but not the ones who treated me the way LK & her cohorts at BIB are treating me now. Who is Benedicte to judge me about my behaviour and saying nasty things when she got the wrong end of the stick? Hence my reasons for saying there is language barriers between Jyoti, Benedicte, Flavia and I. The fact that Isabel said they speak fluent English does not mean they spend time listening and paying attention to understand what the speaker is saying.
Might I refer those in authority to the EYFS Prime Area of Communication and Language to prove my point? For the 2 they have EAL, and this might be the same reasons others have come to the conclusions and made claim that I am dismissive of authority. They spoke in the Emergency Meeting we had about communication that they were offended when I told BS to do her research about multigenerational working. But for us in the business that we do research is part of the Job Description.
Then I am being told that my Foundation Degree don’t matter, and I can’t do my work before getting approval from them, because I don’t have their status. I am questioning JB, BS, FF understanding of English because of the way they approach their work, the questions they ask and not even making the effort to do research about aspects of their work. Then they expect that I should do the research and teach them. But even stranger is the fact that because I am LEYF for 5+ years they are only willing to take on what they think is useful to them and disregard the rest.
I’ve heard Jyoti asking over and over for information about planning, LJ’s, etc which she is given daily and which she failed to grasp. Then when she read an article able the CEO, she came to ask me what CEO means. I rest my case and I am tired and frustrated of spoon-feeding Jyoti and others how to do their work and then they bear a grudge against me for my knowledge and expertise.
I was not informed about any of what was put in writing to Dilys until I got the letter to attend the Disciplinary Hearing on the 28.03.2015 after being sent home with pay to rest from my ordeals.
However, from that day my life became a living hell at BIB. I was coming to the end of my shift one day and being aware of Policy & Procedures working with LEYF for 5 years, I asked SAO the duty manager if LK was counted in ratio. I went to the office to ask LK if it was possible to come to cover me and she was in with Nicola, Lauren & (Sadie) Nicola said her 2 staff finished at 5.00pm so they would be going. LK eventually came to the preschool, goes into the Baby Room and comes back to say I have to stay on because she is going in with Carol who have 3 babies.
And although I know the ratio was covered, I choose not to challenge LK because I could see the pattern that was developing after the wedding as she was trying everything to try and get me for Professional Misconduct. Another day I was getting ready to leave when LK comes to tell me we will have to have it out because someone told her she heard me and the chef Gloria talking about her in the kitchen and called her a coward. I said to LK I have not spoken to Gloria. I was overcome with emotions, started crying and saying to LK I don’t know what they are trying to do to me, but she must stop from listening to the troublemakers.
I am now wondering if the time when LK said she was with 2 staff wasn’t the evening I went to the office and saw LK, Nicola and the 2 staff. And could this be the time when LK was plotting with them to gather evidence in the campaign to discredit me. Because it was soon after that when all these allegations were being made and there was a meeting for which I am still waiting for the minutes from Remi after LK attended an Emergency Meeting at CO and was advised how to deal with me, she said.
The 2 staff mentioned are the same whom I have been giving inspiring feedback about having a bright future in LEYF. I was nurturing them sharing my practice of working 5 years with LEYF with them (see photos). I even shared my concerns about their colleague Tehseba with them and heard that Nicola spoke to her and also the CEO on a visit said anyone without a Sense of Humour would not do well in LEYF. Most of my break time was taken up with writing up my observations on the computer whilst they were fresh in my mind (see LJ’s, Activity Planning, etc). Since the incident with the dirty towel there was not much chatting by me with anyone because I keep being warned about being careful who I talk to and I realised there was a whispering campaign and everyone observing my practice, saying I am not contributing.
By this time, I was becoming paranoid as I realised, I was being spied on by everyone from every angle and it was causing my health conditions and disability to affect me emotionally and physically. Yes, I’d asked one of the young ladies to join me at circle time explaining I did not want Jyoti to be with me because she was driving me to distractions. Instead of being able to do the job I had to be explaining things to her which I did already. Instead of focusing on the children I was focusing on Jyoti and there were new key children whom I was settling who needed my attention.
I felt Staff Meetings were called to undermine, belittle and make me feel incompetent as well as to give me a clear message that I was not welcome at BIB. The tones of the meetings were all directed at me. In the 1st such meeting (see minutes) LK showed her true colours the way she expressed herself. All left for her to do was call my name Mervelee Myers directly, because everything was pointed directly at me. She claimed Stella Louis (I will be addressing more about SL as soon as I get there) had fed her information about activity that was made up as the person go along. When I confirmed I was observed doing the activity and it was on the planning she didn’t want to know.
Anyway, SL had given me a totally different feedback. Each time that I tried to justify my practice, LK would counteract. Then when I am sharing about this spontaneous activity I’d done, she said activity can’t be spontaneous, they have to be planned in advance and I 1st have to share with colleagues and get their approvals. Since I am not the expert, I’ll let them decide, because this is the problem I found with the workplaces of late. I studied to a certain level and because of the systems in practice, I am not empowered to apply the enhance knowledge and expertise I gained via 7 years of studies, so I try not to offend anyone.
Yet at the Speech & Language training we did on the 11.3.15 I was the 1 getting the practice activities right because I only needed to refresh prior studies and trainings. LK admitted that the activity I done with the hat teaching the children so much when she was in the room with me. The children have taken ownership of it and initiate their own learning. It helps to promote inclusion especially for children with SEND and other additional needs. Now this is the same activity that LK said could not be spontaneous…?
Concerns for Health & Welfare
All I am saying on this matter at the moment is I am very opened and honest about my Health and Welfare (see copy of email) because I always willed myself back to being positive after I’ve been down, but what about LK? From my recent research into LK I have come up with some findings which LEYF as a provider of services for the Vulnerable Children and Adults need to be aware of. So might LEYF not be trying to use underhand methods to try and get me out of my job whilst the person who need their attention is LK? Other persons who might pose safeguarding risks to the vulnerable also have free access to LEYF premises. So might this not be LEYF responsibility to act now to avert a crisis that might reach the relevant authority and become PUBLIC?
I am grateful that LEYF save me from being ruined by giving me a job when I was down on my luck because of no fault of mine other than I’d raised concerns. However I am not prepared to sit back 7 years later and let LEYF send back to where I was 7 years ago because of LK & her BIB cohorts.
Since LK and LEYF are so concerned about my health and welfare and have a duty to all their staff, WHY DID HILDA MILLER SENT ME TO HOC? Was this to get me more DEPRESSED because I’d refused to be transferred there after realising, I wouldn’t be able to cope after covering there? And is that why I was escorted out of the premises by the manager who told me there was Heavy Security presence. Then she never even thinks when she told me the reason she was escorting me down was because I didn’t have a PASS.
So, is she telling me that the Security at HOC were not doing their jobs? I am wondering how the Security would feel about knowing this? Is the Powers that Be at LEYF thinking about the implications of sending me to HOC? Because only staff who are Security Cleared are allowed to work at HOC, and LK & LEYF are concerned to the point where if I am not sacked BIB staff are going to resign. And LEYF is now trying to “set me up” using Dilys words when she came to see me at HOC on Friday 27th March 2015. I made it clear to Dilys that I knew exactly what Occupational Health is because I Self-Referred before, so it was no mystery to me.
Then I was treated like a common criminal and escorted out of HOC. I am wondering what the Security were making of the situation, because I could see them taking a keen interest. But you know what I was professional enough to go and bid them goodbye and thank them for helping me when I was struggling with the buggies. And I am sure they noticed that I walked out with a Valid piece of Evidence that I was at HOC.
I would like for Stella Louis to address this discussion which LK claimed to have had with her about me. Because this is hearsay, I’d like to have some clarifications from SL please. I have never met SL before coming to BIB and the 1st time it was briefly in the garden when we exchange greetings and talked about ECAT trainings. The next time was when she observed me doing an activity for which she gave positive feedback and constructive criticism about being better prepared which I took on board.
She also asked my opinion about a member of staff practice and when I was reluctant, she encouraged me to be honest with her. The next time I saw her at BIB it was only to say good morning. I told Stella Louis when she asked that I worked in KINGS before and she said she is working with them, so wondering if this have anything with what LK claims she said, if she did? Could Stella have gone back to KINGS to make enquiries about me and continue the trend of networking against me or did LK take her saying out of context?
I even made sure to enrol for her seminar at the Nursery World Show 2015, when I realised, she writes about Schemas and I see so much of the children with schemas at BIB.
25th February 2015 – SM
Can LK please explain why she was relying on a certain person to come and hold her hands at the meeting?
My understanding from the SM is totally different from LK and it happened the week after I got back from being off sick for a week because of the treatment I got at the hands of LK and BIB team.
- Most concerns coming out of the meeting was to do with lack of communications about changes happening in the nursery – SAO sent to Brixton and parents and key children not informed.
- The number of new faces that were coming to the nursery and the impact on the children especially those who take longer to get used to strangers.
- Staff ratio especially early morning when children are dropped off by parents or grandparents.
- Having access to the nursery (I raised concerns 1 morning when I was stood for ages, could see Jyoti in the Baby Room). Jyoti told me she was playing music for the babies so did not here the buzzer. For there is justifying and prioritising your practice, but I guess they wouldn’t understand my old-fashioned values and beliefs in the way I work. Better still I do not have any Status.
- LK mentioned about putting us at strategic position for drop off and pick up, but I noticed after the rhetoric and bureaucratic red tape, those dictates only apply to me when she wants to get evidence to say I am not doing my job (She never let the parent in from the buzzer in the graphic area either).
- 1 parent in particular was asking detailed questions of the deputy manager and writing the answers.
- When I introduce my vision of starting the garden projects parents were supportive and agreed to offer resources for the Mud Kitchen.
- I have since accepted that nothing I do now will ever be good enough for LK & BIB team because they want me out of there at whatever cost even if they have to destroy my good name and character in the process. But I am determined to unearth the truth for the sake of those Vulnerable children who need protecting and their parents for whom I owe a duty of care. There has to be reasons why LK & BIB team have taken a dislike to me, and I know for a fact Benedicte hates the very ground that I walk on.
- I can’t help now but wonder if this have anything to her being mixed raced?
Staff not Talking to Mervelee
Mervelee Myers is holding LK responsible for this state of affairs in the nursery because after she came back from an Emergency Meeting at CO she claimed that she was advised to do my Supervision and not discuss anything else. But she couldn’t help talking about what she was going to do and how she had to go for Counselling. She kept saying they talked about Margaret at the wedding and Margaret abused children. I have no knowledge of who Margaret is and the impact she had on LK why she had to go for Counselling.
So now I can’t help wondering if something about me reminded LK of Margaret and hence the reason I am being treated this way? Because I know without a doubt that LK has put up the staff to be harassing, bullying and intimidating me as well as whole scale DISCRIMINATIONS. And I have now been made aware that CO team knew and sanctioned BIB team not to attend the New Year’s Staff Party because of what was reported about incidents at the wedding. Hence the reasons why certain persons came to talk to me at the NYSP and subsequent visits by Trustees and others soon after.
Yet I attended the NYSP and felt like a fish out of water and when Nicola reported to LK that I was sitting on my own LK could report back to another staff that it served me right. This showed my unfailing loyalty to LEYF & the CEO in particular whom I admired as a Lady of Worth because we shared some similar values and life experiences. That’s why at 1st I said I wasn’t going to get my photo done with the Nursery Chain of the Year Trophy & CEO but thought better of it.
I am feeling more hurt, disappointed, and devastated knowing CO was in on the act and knew BIB was not attending and got the approval not to go. Does this not then prove my loyalty to LEYF and my arguments that BIB don’t think of themselves as LEYF and HM is more about being on an ego trip of me, myself and I rather promoting LEYF ethos & DNA.
Then they have the audacity to say the way I write about them, well I believe every words I have written because they are nothing but the truth.
BS said even if I don’t have to come to work tomorrow. I felt really bad that I was having that impact on a young lady in whom I’d seen so much potentials.
I had also reassured her when she kept saying she was SCARED of me. I discussed the matter with LK and thought it best to put my side of the matter in writing hoping to get it across better because I never met HM until that time when she spoke to me about what parent said (see above). I heard things said by others about her and realised the staff were terrified of her. I believe in getting to know a person before making judgements and jumping to conclusions. I find that although HM kept her distance with me, and this could be due to her status I don’t know? If she needs me to do any work, she would speak directly to me and I would reassure her to rely on me.
I believe everyone is an individual and we are unique in our different ways. I am a person who likes to find my bearings whenever I go to a new place, but the staff (I don’t know who) complained to LK about me before I even had time to settle. Thereafter HM spoke to me about the Learning Journeys. Eventually when we had OFSTED and I predicted on the day that we’d get a Good with Outstanding Features and it came to pass. HM showed her appreciation of my hard work and commented that I was her New Best Friend.
When I was off sick, LK phoned me at home to say HM was using 1 of my key children to do her project and she was impressed with the work I’d done. As I said HM was not a sociable person towards me, but she’d come directly to me if she needed my help. She came to the cupboard 1 day and said she had to do a presentation on Thursday so needs me to update the child’s LJ and I promised to do my best. I came to work early, left late and worked at home until late to get the work done. She said Ricky would be coming in 1 day so to ask him to scan the work over.
Ricky wasn’t able to do it and the job falls to Lauren and that was when I was giving her an insight into how I do my work. We ended meeting HM deadline and I celebrated taking (see photos) of our collaboratively partnership working. HM called spoke to Carol and passed on a message of thanks for me which I accepted graciously.
Since when I take my concerns to how I was treated, and LK wasn’t taking any notice of me. I had written a report about Jyoti to LK which she said she put in my file. After the Emergency Meeting in the setting when I realised the magnitude of what the TEAM was saying I decided to put in writing my issues with Benedicte whom I believe to be the main instigator of my situation at BIB. This is after the reaction from 1 of her colleagues when I get stressed and emotional every thing gets muddled. I told LK about putting my concerns in writing because I learned from prior experiences to say to others what I am doing before doing it.
Social Media is used to connect professionals who network sharing best practice and I have had conversations on SM with the CEO we are members of groups like Nursery World. I always anonymise anything I put in the public domain and knows about Confidentiality & Social Media Policy & Procedures. However, 1 CEO of Early Years Consultancy – Laura Henry wrote a piece in EYE Magazine about using SM to further Continuing Personal Professional Development Plan (CPPDP). Most of my blogs is about my personal experiences as a child to my adulthood. I have shared this information with LK, but she only chose to view it in a negative light once she had an axe to grind for some perceived wrong, I am supposed to have done her.
Hilda Miller on the other hand was very dismissive of me, undermining and belittling my work. She said I did not know anything because if I knew anything, I would be the deputy. I told her I never applied for the position because I knew my limitations. She ranted and raved at me about how BIB is her Baby, and I wasn’t going to do anything to spoil it. She said I am talking about Luton Street where I came from and she was told that LS just scraped thru the OFSTED.
She said BIB didn’t have to do anything that other LEYF nurseries do if they don’t want to. She was just reinforcing what was being said by BIB that they are not LEYF so don’t have to do the things that represented LEYF ethos & DNA that I was trying to promote and implement.
HM also humiliated and striped me of my dignity, saying when I clear my throat she didn’t want to hear it because it was disgusting and basically putting me down as a person.
That was when I realised that all the whispers, I had been hearing about her when I came to BIB were true. Everyone including LK was scared stiff of her, but I didn’t scare easily. I decided to take down the blogs since I didn’t want to give HM any power over me. She claimed I should not say I work for LEYF even after I’d recently received a Long Service Letter from the CEO in October (see letter). One of the blogs was about the benefits to me of working close to home (see copy).
New Years Staff Party
There was to be a New Year’s Staff Party for all where the CEO would receive her MBE. They all planned to attend, but on the night, I ended up at the party by myself. After that the CEO and 1 of the trustees attended BIB and she told me she told BIB team off for not attending. The next day Mary Wynne-Finch another trustee turned up and I in my naiveté was saying to LK something wonderful must be happening at BIB for us to be having these visitors 1 after the other.
I’d met Mary when I was at Luton Street when she showed interest in a display I’d done. I met her again at the NYSP and she spoke to me but did not know at the time I was targeted because of report LK asked Benedicte to write and which was sent to Dilys.
I was under scrutiny from after the 4.1.2015 the day after Rumi’s wedding.
It was only when someone put me on my guard that I became aware that these visitors were coming to BIB for what LK said was reporting to Dilys Human Resources after the wedding and for which I was not informed. LEYF staff were seen congregating outside the nursery premises, because every angle LK used to get me didn’t work. Next day I got into work and saw Dilys in the office, later I was called to a meeting.
Dilys outlined some information and told me I have options to take out a grievance. She gave me deadlines and when I query the times, telling her I have to be at work, she said I have to get it to her at the time she specified. I asked for toil, but I did not take her up on the grievance because I have been through a similar experience and knew they already made allegations and although I know what is happening to me, I have no concrete evidence to back up my claims.
Then they would launch a Disciplinary without me having legs to stand on. I knew I could not fall fowl of anything as I needed to earn a living and because of past experiences, I would not be able to get another job out there at my age. Work is what keeps me going and part of my rehabilitation from my health conditions and disability. I thought after that things would go back to normal, but I was in for a mistake, and they got worse.
This is where I am now with my life as I believe as Dilys said in her own words. “I am not here to set you up and do you trust me?” LEYF is now trying to get rid of me on the grounds of being incompetent to do my job after being unable to come up with any other valid grounds. Dilys told me that she was sending me home with pay to get some rest after trying to get information to do a Referral to Occupational Health. When I asked if I was going to get the referral to read before she sent it off, she said no she didn’t have the time and would be reading it to me over the phone.
That was when I started thinking what the rush was. During our conversation she kept saying that will come up in the Disciplinary, but I don’t have anything to do with it. She made statements like that was not what they said about you and I am concerned about you from the things you have written.
Then she surprised me when I told her that I was not on medication for my health conditions and disability. I told her although I was prescribed Valium from my 20’s for my anxiety-tremors, I’d stopped taking after doing studies in the UK. I resorted to lifestyle changes and holistic approaches as I did not want to be addicted to prescribed medications.
I think Dilys in her role as Head of HR committed the cardinal sin when she asked if my doctor knows I am not on medications for my diabetes. Even in far flung regions of underdeveloped countries like Jamaica knows you can control some health conditions without medications. 2 of my brothers have diabetes, but 1 like me is not on medication. The other have other underlying conditions which means he must take medications.
And then Dilys has the heart to tell me that I might not have PARKINSON Disease because I self-diagnosed. It is situation like these when they say I am dismissive of authority. Does Dilys know the amount of money the NHS is saving when I can manage my health conditions without relying on medications? I doubt very much she does and that’s why I might seem dismissive of authority who can’t even spare a little time to do research as part of their Job Descriptions. I bend over backwards to share my knowledge and doing the job that I am not even responsible for, but I know if I don’t do it, it won’t get done. But this is the rewards I get for my passion, dedication and hard work in the bargain.
I was treated like a common criminal on Friday, being escorted out by the manager at HOC. Dilys told me she is sending me home with pay to get rest. When my husband came home and saw me, he asked if I was suspended, I said no, sacked I said no. I kept telling him I was sent home with pay to rest from my ordeals. Next morning there was a letter from CO inviting me to a Disciplinary and that’s when the penny dropped. I have to tell my husband I am suspended, and I was really upset.
What is happening to me since the 05.01.2015 has impacted on every aspects of my life and I am being penalised for doing the job I am paid to do. My home life is in turmoil as my husband is worried and taking out his frustrations on me. I am concerned about his health and wellbeing as well as mine. I am a resilient person dealing and coping with all sorts of adversities from my childhood to date. But this is the biggest challenge I have to face to date and all I want is to see it end so I get back my life to some normality.
Talk about my brother ASHTER and Judy from Luton Street who they made allegations about. Not given the job even though I was the only candidate shortlisted from LEYF, to let them see I am not to be judged.
This is where I will have to be honest and sum up what I think of Joyti in a nutshell and don’t get me wrong I not being dismissive of authority. Since BIB team have already made their judgements about me nothing, I do would be good enough for them. All I am going to say I have a good relationship with all the staff prior to Jyoti coming to BIB except Benedicte who claimed she was scared of me. Matters only started going wrong after Jyoti joined and she started finding fault with everything I do.
But even more strange she only started this after I’d spent my time sharing my practice over the last 5 years working with LEYF. I thought it odd at 1st when she asked questions and say things like I am asking you, you should know. In some circumstances I had to direct her to the manager because it had nothing to do with me. That was when I asked LK who is responsible for training her.
I honestly think by this time Jyoti had let her status get to her head. If she was listening, paying attention and trying to understand she would have picked up about me coming in to do the garden. I am not 1 who comes in 10.00 o’clock to start my 10.00 o’clock shift because my Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) that is linked to my health conditions and disability would not allow it.
This just proves my point about Jyoti telling me to hurry up because she didn’t want to miss her train on the night a child was collected late. LK didn’t help matters either when she tried to disempower me and saying those, she given status would be the ones running the place. Then when she is struggling to come up with an answer like at the last Staff/Parent Meeting she calls out come on Mervelee, you know what I am talking about.
I have gotten used to being used by others since 2004, when I started studying with the Open University because I have no other choice.
If Jyoti needed to supervise children inside why was she looking outside for the duration of the time she was stood at the door?
Why does Jyoti have to interpret everything I do in a negative manner to suit her own perceptions of who she would rather I become?
I am hereby challenging Jyoti’s versions of events because I feel this was planned between LK, Jyoti, Benedicte and Flavia. 3 incidents happened on the same day. I have clarified this in writing. Before the incident with Jyoti happened, LK left to get someone to cover her because she needed to go write a letter for a parent by 3.30.
Jyoti came to the door as a look out and then waited before coming out to say I wasn’t doing my job. I walked away, but she threatened to deal with me later. Before my shift finished, I was asked to stay behind and then later told staff complained about me and there was to be an investigation the next day. LK was deliberately trying to get an unfavourable response from me whilst in the office with her and Flavia.
But I did not fall for the bait this time like with the banana incident.
Are copies of the shifts kept?
Because I only do 2 shifts 9 & late since I requested not being able to do early. I am surprised with Jyoti’s statement about not being a team player and won’t even waste my time trying to address her biased assumptions.
Since I also addressed this in writing I’ll just briefly touch on the matter. Flavia’s statement is nothing, but blatant lies and I have no reservations in saying it exactly as it is. When I started at BIB, Flavia was one of the more sensitive members of the team and from speaking with her, realised she had her issues with others when she started at BIB too. I gradually came to hear stories once we started practising for the Christmas Play from others about the behaviour of a particular member of the BIB team.
Flavia raised a number of issues about practices at BIB with me in confidence. (Refer to Reviews Online)
When Dilys came to do the DNA training Flavia talked openly about the situation between her and Benedicte when she started at BIB. I have heard from other staff that Benedicte’s behaviour can be quite haughty verging on bullying, intimidating and harassing others.
And I have witnessed that myself especially with REMI and when she used to keep group meetings, because she believes she is the only one to make decisions as she is Room Leader. I however do not stand for nonsense and will challenge unprofessional behaviours no matter your status.
Toilet: I have times before this incident at BIB when I can become incontinent. However, since the incident it is even worse, and I need to use the toilet regularly. I put in writing the effect what is happening at BIB is having on my health. Sometimes I feel as if I will lose my dignity in front of others if I don’t get to the toilet on time and that day was 1 such day when I needed to get to the toilet.
Since LK promoted Flavia to duty manager, she has been recruited by LK to join the BIB team who are discriminating against me. I will be given orders by Flavia to do this and that and because I know my situation and I was warned that those are some of the tactics that will be used to say I am not doing my work. I just get on with the orders when they are dished out by LK, Jyoti, Benedicte and Flavia and even Rujina is in on the act too. But I know I can’t win so I just complied to make my life a little easier.
Flavia has changed beyond all recognition from the girl who I met when I started at BIB. From what she told me about her mum, her mum would surely be disappointed with her now. But I’ll leave her alone to live with her conscience.
I addressed this as well but will briefly clarify. This is a figment of Benedict’s imagination. BS was outside when I was changing the child and I came back from putting his clothes on the peg to see BS inside about to change the other child. Here is where I am saying everyone has their arguments down to time specific details as although I didn’t check time there was no way I would be taking 20 minutes to change the child who’d only leaked on his clothes when he went to toilet.
When I came back from putting the clothes on the peg BS was in the bathroom and I stood outside to speak to her and did not go near her at all. So how can she be saying I was in her face?
What does she mean by being cheeky and having to say it? I have experienced only disrespect from BS ever since I came to BIB. It is recorded in the information I shared with LK. If my elder son had started having children, the age when I started BS could probably be my grandchild? I was not raised that way and I make sure I am respectful to each and every one regardless of age, etc…
I’ll leave others to be the judge of this statement about the gloves. But are we not supposed to challenge each other inappropriate practice if and when they occur? Are is BS telling me her way of doing it is to be cheeky as she said.
Why if she is scared of me as she is claiming she never asked LK to raise this safeguarding re Health and Safety issue with me?
Here is my proof that BS has been saying she is SCARED of me ever since I started at BIB, yet I have yet to hear from her or anyone else why this so.
It is time for BS to clarify what she means by I am INTIMIDATING. When did she ever challenged me and about what? All she has ever being is rude to me and Remi because she believes as LEYF staff we should not be promoting and implementing LEYF ethos and DNA.
As for touching BS there was an occasion when Stella came, and BS was asking me why I had done certain activity and made a display. I told her Flavia had advised me that the work I had done “Shapes People” could be displayed on the maths board. She however wanted to know why I had done them with full explanations, because she was of the opinion they were done as part of celebrations. I explained that this was a project I’d started supporting and extending children’s learning and it had been going on for some time.
BS said as the Room Leader I have to tell her why I done them because she didn’t know in case SL asked her. I explained I can justify my practice why I’d done the activity and I know what I am doing because I studied.
BS said although you have a Degree that don’t matter because I am the Room Leader. (Refer to UEL and Richard Harty – Is there reasons to think LEYF & the UEL are operating ABUSE RINGS?)
I told her my Foundation Degree is important to me, so it does matter, and I said if you need to know why I do things don’t be afraid to ask me, I am here to support you. BS said I am SCARED. I turned to BS and said do you mind if I touch you, I am going to talk to you, but I am a very tactile person. BS said ok and I put her to sit on the chair touched her shoulders and said… You are doing an excellent job as Room Leader and I can see your potentials, so you have far to go in LEYF. Please don’t be scared of me, I am here to support you.
I later discussed the matter with LK and told her how I had approached the issue with BS.
If Isabel the investigator was listening, paying attention to what I was saying to her about BS then she might recall that I actually demonstrated using the chair how I’d put BS to sit touching her shoulders and begging her to talk to me and not be scared. I’d 1st asked BS permission before touching her however because of a similar situation with a colleague at Luton Street nursery (I will be talking about this at the Hearing).
Gloves: I find BS argument rather confusing and difficult to understand. Since she was so SCARED of me, I see this as her creating an opportunity for a confrontation. She has been keeping her distance from me and even when I speak to her, she doesn’t acknowledge me. Yet all of a sudden BS is doing & saying things for me to act out of character to bolster up their evidence to paint the picture they want of me. At 1st I decided not to say anything but thought better of it and went to LK to get her to come inside so I could talk to her. But she stopped long enough with BS to hear what she had to say before coming in.
Since BS is saying she reported to HM why has HM never spoken to me at any times when she visited. The same thing happened at the banana incident when LK threatened that HM is coming in next day and there would be a meeting.
Is HM going to now say she is intimidated by me too, like she done to others who were forced out of their jobs by HM & LK? Another set up I am now assuming in light of Dilys argument on Friday 27th March when she came to give me my discharge to go home with pay and rests from my ordeals. Next morning the Disciplinary arrived in the post. By now I am sure they must realise I am no FOOL. I have my limitations that restrict some of my ability to act out in the public, but once I am in the background without pressures, I can defend myself with my documentations and “DEFENSIVE PRACTICE”.
Benedicte is a LIAR
BS was nowhere in sight when Jyoti and I had the conversation on Thursday. I have nothing else to say about her statement to the effect. I have written a statement about this incident.
Could someone please explain to me in heaven’s name how BS see the body language she is talking about. Although I do put on performances when I am ready, I would like this clarified.
Please read the communication I gave to LK where I think I clarified this issue about BS.
This is why I believe there are language barriers between myself and some of the BIB staff team as they totally interpreted everything, I say differently from the information I am trying to give out.
Dilys visited re Grievance
When Dilys visited suggesting I take out a grievance I discussed with her about the issues that I only discovered at the Emergency Staff Meeting. I apologised if I’d unknowingly offended anyone and tried to clear up the matter.
Judy Vaughn Story
Judy’s struggle with her sexuality. Seeing evidence of self-harm. Allegations made. Me recalling events which helped cleared her of the allegations. Her bursting into tears and saying she needs to talk about what was done to her. Me about to comfort her and remembering she said I’d invaded her space. She didn’t like me when I started at LSN. Sharing my personal experiences so I could give her the support she obviously needed at the time. Judy seeing me in a different light since then.
Since Tolu didn’t sign her statement, I am going to consider it as hearsay and hearsay cannot be admitted into law. Therefore, it does not have any bearings any anything as far as I am concerned. In light of further evidence about inappropriate practice at BIB which have come to light, I might have to call the Agency to give evidence about information they were given about issues raised about BIB and the manager LK.
I sent some documents in the package which I think might be of use to clear up some of the points raised by those who gave evidence at the investigations.

My Mother Perline Louise Nembhard
My story about my journey with my mother from I have memory of who I am to being on the phone when she was taking her final breath is my testimony of why HMCTS and CPS and CJS and HMPPS career criminals must be charged for discrimination against me with their own Emotional Regulation Treatment.
Impact of LEYF Allegations: Nervous Breakdowns
On this day 5 years ago Mervelee Ratty Nembhard is celebrating a healthy future on Earth.
Daily Express Page 15: Holding hands to the end – Nurses move devoted couple’s bed together for their final hours. MM Updates 2021: I had to move out of the room I shared with my father before he died because my son was born on 22 December 1979 and dad was bed sore and this was not good for the young baby. But I always carried on doing my duty, helping mum as much as I can with caring for my dad and grandmother. Grandma had her own house because we were brought up to be caring to our family who were in need. We live in proximity whenever possible. Dad and grandma died a month of each other, much to the relief of my family. Some of the pressures were lifted off mum’s shoulders with their passing. As an only girl some of mum’s responsibility fall on my shoulders and I can say without a doubt this was the making of Mervelee Ratty Nembhard into the compassionate human being I am. Therefore, I must make sure the world knows about the miscarriages of justice in the toxic workplaces after I experienced bereavement and losses.
Now this is the kind of life I am used to. My #Papa was sick for 10+ years and I have to learn about #Caring4Sick from an early age. That is in addition to caring for my younger siblings and other extended families. Then my #Grandma took sick and both died a month apart in 1980. Now anyone who have not merely been interested about trying to find the #Dirt to try #Blemish my life chances like LEYF Nurseries will be aware of my story. MM Updates: I must make it my business to remember the roles I played from the time my youngest brother was born and dad handed him to me when he took him out of the room for mum to have her rest. I have taken in the responsibility for members of my family since. I must let it be known it was not easy growing up as an only girl in a male dominated household. The fact that I was totally different from my mother and outspoken did not bear well with some. As the adage a child must be seen and not heard did not apply to me. I would obey my parents and grandma, but I never accepted everything without questioning. That is why some of the old sayings resonated with me and I can find a place for how I interpret based on my personal experiences.
I will carry on doing what I know I am good at with my Fight4justice campaign. I am a Carers UK and knows exactly what life is all about. Believe it or not I was responsible for the #MultigenerationalWorkingApproach with LEYF Nurseries until I transferred to BIB. Despite the #CEOJuneOSullivan sanctioning my #CPPDP in writing, BIB have a different agenda and the #AreaManagerHildaMiller decided BIB did not have to do anything that was part of the #Ethos, #CoreValues & #DNA from Luton Street.
The RIH, but they haven’t heard the last of this #Saga yet?
Today May 12th, 2013 is being celebrated as Mother’s Day around the world but not in the UK. So even thou I have been living in the UK for over 20 years I do what everyone else does and celebrate Mothering Sunday with the children I work with. However, I always celebrate officially around this time because my mother and the other women who played important roles in my life are living abroad. Even thou I told my children that there is a different time for Mother’s Day in the UK, they still salute as part of the custom at this time too. My mum is the most important person in my life and for me every day is Mother’s Day as far as I am concerned. This week is also being celebrated as Dementia Awareness Week, so I have decided to write about the debilitating condition that has mum in its grasp and from which there is no escape. I know for certain that she will only be released from her misery when the good Lord decided to answer our prayers and take her home to be with her loved ones.
MM Updates: Some of the persons attending mum’s funeral have passed on. My cousin Joyce Saunders in the yellow in the front row died with cancer. But more shocking is the fact that her daughter died in her 40s of cancer too. I supported my family throughout the time and set up a Facebook Page in her name. Janet Beeput worked at the Funeral Home that was in charge of mum’s funeral arrangements. To be trolled by the haters and Facebook join in to target me has taken a toll on my mental health. I contributed to fundraising afer the death of my brother BYRON with colon cancer.
Discrimination: Miscarriages of Justice
Daily Express Page 13 – Jennifer Selway: I admire the no nonsense arguments of this columnist that I have chosen some of her articles to compare. What makes Theresa tick. The discovery I made is that the PM Theresa May was an only child. Therefore, as an only girl, I think we share that aspects of our life in common and that is more than enough for me. I was always headstrong and have a mind of my own. I believe that was due in part to the fact that I have to #Champion my own causes and did not always rely on anyone to do so for me. But I don’t want anyone to get the wrong impressions that my #7Bredas were not #Protective of me. However, I loved to do things my way. I have #5Bredas left and we are one united family. All when we just finish having a go at each other, please keep your distance!
MM Updates: I must be honest in saying I have decided that to heal myself of the traumas that affected my life chances I must be honest and clear the cobwebs from my mind. I must speak the truth cost it what it is, s/he who hides the wrong they do will continue doing the wrong thing still. I never get over the fact that I was abandoned, rejected, and beaten up by some members of my family. I spent 7+ years of my life expecting my family and friends to help me out of the situation of discrimination forced on me by LEYF and the Judiciary of England and Wales, the Criminal Justice System, and the Crown Prosecution Service did collude with the abusers in the Early Years Sector over the years since my mother died.
