Ann-Marie has worked tirelessly over the last year to keep Derbyshire Toy Library going for parents, offering an essential service for families throughout Lockdown.

  1. Many Congratulations Ann-Marie from Bina and me at DBN Web Design.

    This award is very much deserved.

    Working with you on the Derbyshire Toy Libraries website has been an honour and a great pleasure.

  2. Dennis we share this award with you and Bina too if we had not moved our services online via the Website for Membership (“Total Game-changer”) and Database we would not be where we are today at nearly 400 members and have hired our over 1000….. toys and resources and more recently the addition of the online Stay & Play Bookings – Looking forward to the completion of database in New Year 2022!

    The award is also shared with all our Trustees, Volunteers, Members & Session Coordinators over past 21 Years & special mention to Lyndsey Willis who has been instrumental in delivery of our Click & Collect, Click & Browse Service and Virtual Toy Sales. Ann-Marie (Founder)
