Playgroup Committee
We are a community Playgroup with charitable status , and are run by a Committee of parents/carers with children attending. The Committee is responsible for the policies of the Playgroup, employing and paying the staff, and fundraising. At the Annual General Meeting (held in the Autumn Term) a new Committee is elected and we invite you all to attend where your ideas and comments will be welcomed. As Trustees of the Playgroup, the Committee is responsible for ensuring that the Playgroup meets the requirements of the Charity Commission.
