Crosthwaite playgroup newsletter: Feb-Apr 2017

Welcome back

Happy New Year everyone! (Okay the newsletter is running a bit late!) We would like to welcome you back and inform you of the latest news from playgroup.

We hope you are happy with playgroup, and the way it is run. As a committee, we welcome all ideas and suggestions and encourage you to share these - please make a note in the Suggestion Book, this is usually next to the register.

Thank you!


Other news

Starting this year, we have decided to discontinue running a nearly new sale.
We found that the time and effort required to organise it did not make the end result worthwhile. We could have increased the percentage going back to playgroup, but we don’t think that would have been fair, especially with the amount of other nearly new sales happening in the area.
Instead we now have an all year-round sale area on our own website which anyone can post things for sale, with no commission cost going to playgroup. For further information either contact Maria or send an email through the link on our website.


Dates for your diary

Half term (20th - 24th Feb)

No usual Playgroup session. However, back by popular demand is our ‘Pancake Party’, celebrating a favourite tradition! The morning of Tuesday 21st February will be filled with the usual playgroup fun & games, bouncy-castle and baking. We will finish off with a lunch for all (children & parents). Additional fees apply (please see poster or ask Maria for details).

Damson Day – Saturday 22nd April

This is the main money-earner for playgroup – it covers the cost of the hall hire!
Each year, we support Damson Day, a very popular local event. Playgroup will run the raffle stall, as well as providing refreshments. This is a worthwhile cause and we hope you can help support it. We will need a few volunteers to carry out the roles on the day, and some substantial raffle prizes too, if possible!
Raffle tickets will be available to buy, and to sell to friends and family nearer the time.

Easter Holidays (8th April – 23rd April)

No Playgroup. An outing or party will be organised, if we have the interest.
