Come and join the parent committee of West End Playgroup and have fun getting to know other parents while helping to raise money for the playgroup, which is a registered charity. Our committee organises several events throughout the year including: a Halloween party, Christmas raffle and Summer fair. The committee meets once every half term to discuss fundraising events and to link up with the management team of West End Playgroup. Our committee changes almost every year and so we are always looking out for new, willing parents to take part and really get involved with the playgroup. As a charity and limited company, we also need some of our committee members to take on the role of charity trustees and company directors, which always looks good on any CV! So, if you are having a career break and will be looking to get a new job in the future, many of our committee parents have found that it helps to get involved.
"I joined the parents' committee and it has proved to be a great way to meet other parents and get involved in events and fundraising. Working with Helen and her team we have organised Halloween parties, raffles and summer fairs - and we have even managed to squeeze in a few social events just for the grown ups too. West End really has the community feel that I wanted from a pre-school and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
