About Our Patron.

Neil Griffiths was a Primary School headteacher for 13 years before taking on the role of director of a National Literacy Support Project for the Basic Skills Agency.  He has created award-winning play resources and written a nursery curriculum.


Neil has a  wealth of experience  – his knowledge of learning, his gift of story, his passion for teaching, and his love of children.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have Neil as our Patron.

“It is with huge delight that I accept Wiltshire Scrapstore’s kind request to become their Patron”.

What an honour to be asked to represent such a wonderful organisation, led by amazing staff and volunteers who make such a real difference to the communities of Wiltshire.

I look forward with great excitement to working alongside this team in the years ahead.”

Neil also finds time to write his own children’s books, and this one is dedicated to us at the Scrapstore!
