We now have a new Committee for 2017/18:
Chairperson: Jamie Heaton
Treasurer: Sophie Chambers
Secretary: Vicky Brown
We also have 5 other parents in named roles on the Committee who help with fundraising, producing the newsletter and doing health and safety checks for us. In addition, we have a number of parents who have put themselves forward as volunteers and help with washing etc.
The Committee of parents needs you. It would be great if all the parents could get involved with the playgroup in some way. Helping out during at least one of the years your child attends the playgroup can make a real difference to yourself and your child.
The Committee meet once every half term with the staff and discuss issues affecting the day to day running of the setting. We have parent members who are responsible for fundraising, health and safety, shopping, and even producing a half termly newsletter!
There are many other ways in which you can help, such as:
- Arranging sponsorship from your employer
- Helping with fundraising events
- Preparing activities for the children
- Giving a talk about your work or hobby
- Taking washing home
We always welcome new ideas and suggestions from parents.
Together we can give our children the right start!
