More Stories From My Childhood Into Adulthood!
Since LEYF Nurseries www.leyf.org.uk, decided that they can be playing the fool, thinking they can use me from 1st September 2009 until after I returned from saying goodbye to my MOTHER in January 2014… Then I am going to show them what I am capable of. I started at Fitzrovia on the 1.9.2009 with a Foundation Degree in EarlyYears from the The The Open University. I started with the passion of the Early Years Practitioner who developed the listening ethos after years of studying to enhance knowledge here in the UK. My thirst for knowledge is based on my own personal experiences from childhood. However, some of these experiences were a mystery to me, as I was left to learn most things by using my own initiatives.
I will tell anyone who cares to know that growing up in my household was not the easiest because of my history. I am a one off, unique person who weathered many storms throughout my transitional journeys. Don’t get me wrong, my life was as happy as any other child, even though I was an only girl amongst my 7 bredas. I grew up as a #TomBoy, as free as a bird in the sky, even when I have the strictest of parents. My Mother was more the heavy handed parent when it comes to the discipline. She would beat me for no reasons at all at the blink of an eye. Most of the times I got recued by Dostan Nembhard. That’s why he knows how to pull at my heartsting with his sob stories. I remember one of her favourite reprimand was “don’t let me spit a ground and it dry before you come back”? By now everyone should know that I was/am one of the most stubborn and strong willed person that ever was born.
Today I will focus my story on my breda WALFORD BYRON ALBURNEY Nembhard. For the reasons that are many, but I would like to point out the unique qualities in everyone of my siblings. Maybe then the Bigots like the http://www.justice.gov.uk/tribunals/employment/claims/responding, the establishments and the systems will realise that it is unlawful to discriminate against anyone. All I know about BYRON is that he was not one of those who was blessed with intellectual skills, but what he lacked in intellects, he made up for with his talents and creativity. Don’t get me wrong, he attended Frome School, until he graduated. The story goes he tried to get a job at the Frome Sugar Factory, without any success. He attended the Kenilworth Training Centre where he learned a trade. He was a gifted sportsman, playing cricket and participating in athletics. Phantom Park was the stomping ground where he practiced his craft. He later went onto excell with the Social Development Commission-sdc representing Westmoreland.
I recalled the time he was in the newspaper as Champion Boy of Kenilworth. When he was unable to secure a job, like many from the rural areas, he headed for Town. He last worked at the Stony Hill Heart Academy, before his death on the 27th March 2008. BYRON made a life for himself and his family, when he brought his own property in the Hills of Content Gap St Andrew. He carried his love of farming with him from country and continued. He cultivated coffee, bananas and other provisions on his property.
Everytime I visit home, it was an ocassion for the family to meet up at Ga Ga Street. At times we travelled over to Farm Heights St James to visit Texchus Nembhard. Our love of having close contacts with family was instilled in us by our Father. The story goes that Papa and his Father did not have a very close relationship and he and his siblings drifted apart. Sadly to say there was no reconcilation with Grandpa Charles and some of his children. On the day of his funeral, some of the children turned up when the grave was being moulded up, which left a bad impression on Papa.
I remember my Papa taking us on a pilgrimage to his Family home in St Elizabeth anually. We used to travel on the train and get the bus home from Haddo. Of course all this happened during the happiest times of my life. But then my Papa was struck down by Parkinson’s. This was to be the beginning of the end of my happiness as I would know it, for many reasons. I was sestined to develop childhood traumas from my experiences of my Papa living with Parkinson’s disease and other disablying complications for over 10+ years. But not only that there were other tragedies for my family I lost an uncle from my Papa’s side in 1976, when I was pregnant with my first child. He was brutally murdered at his home one Sunday morning. We hear the news on the radio. Again in 1978 my mother’s only breda Terah was crutally murdered. My grandma took it to heart and didn’t recover. My stories are documented in cyberspace.
After hearing my Mother’s story in January 2014 from my breda Balis and her best friend Ms Connie Legister, I am now beginning to unravel the life that is mine because of the DNA, I inherited from both sides of my family. Knowing about myself and my family is the catalyst that will help me to heal from the two miscarriages of justice by the Employment Tribunals. But also to be able to bring clarity to my family about some of the things that are/were a mystery to me. That’s why I was not surprised when I read Dr Maria Hudson’s 2012 Research Paper Ref: 01/12 that I am part of. Recommendations were made to http://www.acas.org.uk/researchpapers, but not much seems to have been done in terms of changing the laws. Even http://unison.org.uk/ has been in on the act, getting the government to overturn the law where employees have to pay to take employers to the ET. But believe me, the unions are not averse to selling out to the highest bidders. Unison done it to me and now http://www.voicetheunion.org.uk is still charging me fees even though I resigned from 27th September 2015.
I am focusing my story on BYON because I lost him at one of the most crucial times in my life. But it was during his illness with Colon Cancer that we chat the most and I learned so much about him. I made a promise to him on his deathbed to help my neice with her education. But what LEYF has done is depriving me of my Basic Human Rights. I have lost 2 bredas, ASHTER on the 9th April 1994 aged 37+ years old and BYRON on 27th March 2008 aged 56+ years old. Both times I was unable to attend the funerals. However I was in the position to help financially. At one stage during the time when LEYF dicriminated against me from the time I returned from burying my Mother and transferred to BIB on the 23rd July 2014, I thought I was not going to celebrate my 56th birthday. Sufferings, death, poverty, etc are linked to why I developed the Chronic Anxiety I was diagnosed with in July 2006.
I am proud to say that I was able to grant BYRON wish to go back home, his birth place of Townhead, Westmoreland o be buried. I am proud of my accomplishment to date, helping my Family. That’s why those at https://www.gov.uk/employment-tribunal-decisions/ms-m-myers-v-london-early-years-foundation-2300047-2016 can rest assured. That I will not be sitting idly by, whilst they tarnish me with another miscarriages of justice. The first one started after the death of BYRON. Strangely enough some of the most crucial laws and legislations came out during the time I was facing discrimination in the first workplace. Between 2004 to 2008 at Kings College Hosdpital NHS Foundation Trust. Inclusive are: Disability Discrimination Act 2005, Childcare Act 2006, Safeguarding Vulnerable Group Act 2006, Equality Act 2006 and Children & Young People Act 2008. This is what LEYF started after the death of my MOTHER. Whether they know it or not this is TERRORISM.
I am a writer and I will be telling my stories. If Winsome Duncan: Author & Public Speaker thinks she is not going to give me my manuscript and pay me what she owes me she is making a sad mistake. She and http://wwww.ryanclement.com/ defrauded me of my savings and then she called The Metropolitan Police Service and Ambulance Service to deprive me of my entitlement to my rights and freedoms. Thats why I did not give up until I got through to http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report-fraud-about-you decided to give me a voice. Because of further breaches and abuse of their powers when they visit my home and when I visited the Police Station. The Police will have to give an account of why they still allow her to be operating http://www.peachespublications.co.uk as a fraudulent scammer, targetting the vulnerable?
RIP BYON, with God’s help I am able to carry out the promise I made to you on your deathbed. My neice Sara-Kay Nembhard is making you proud. Ambition is the key and the only thing that can stop us is the DNA we were born with.
