Committee Meeting Update
Following our Committee meeting on Wednesday 12th March we just wanted to bring you up to date on what was discussed;
New Shed – we are hoping to replace our two very tired sheds with one large, purpose built new one. We are hoping to hear some news about a possible grant that will help us accomplish this and if all things work out are looking to set the wheels in motion this Easter.
Easter Fundraiser – we will be once more issuing tubes of Smarties for the children just prior to Easter and asking parents to return the tubes (once empty!!) full of pennies (20p’s fit lovely!!)
Disco – we are now putting plans together to hold an evening fundraiser on Saturday 10th May. This will be an Over 18’s disco with a retro vibe, playing 80’s, 90’s and maybe some 00’s! So keep the date free as this will be a fun night and a great way to help raise money for pre-school. More details to follow very soon.
Summer Fair – this year’s fair will now take place on Saturday 5th July 1pm – 4pm and will take on the theme of ‘Springfield-by-the-Sea’. We are hoping to evoke the feeling of being at the seaside and are looking to have donkey rides, an ice-cream van, BBQ, candy floss, games of chance and lots more BUT we need YOUR help! Can you help organise the event? Can you help on the day? Do you have any ideas for stalls/activities? Do you know of anyone, or businesses, that could help out? This is our major fundraiser of the year and we need to make it the best ever but we can only do that if we all work together and share the load. We will be having a meeting on Wednesday 30th April at 7.30pm at The Risley Park pub to chat and plan all things Summer fair; please come along, show your support and help make this a great family event!
Please speak to Jayne or any of the committee should you want to know more about what the committee does or want to get involved.
