A Parent Operated Setting

As a charity and volunteer (parent) committee operated setting, parents are a vital part of our team and we believe this makes for a mutually trusting and supportive connection. 




A self-employed video camera operator from Cambridge, Tim has one daughter and has lived in the village since 2012. He is a PlayStation gamer at every opportunity when not looking after his daughter or filming for work. He believes Harvey Bears is a nurturing

environment and loves to see the children forming friendships with each other.




Originally from Dudley, Chris has lived in Harvington for over 30 years and her great grandchildren attend Harvey Bears. She has an accountancy background and after losing her husband she felt it would be good to get involved with something in the community once again having previously been Treasurer of the Golf Club.Her son lives in the US so she’s fortunate enough to be able to enjoy extended trips over there to visit.
