Playgroup discussion meeting

  • Ivy Cottage Levens, LA8 8PF

We are holding a meeting at Maria's house this coming Friday night.

It would be great if we could get as many people as possible to come along to offer any advice or suggestions for the running of our playgroup.

Also we are looking for anyone who is interested in a small role helping to organise upcoming events.

Now with Maria's newly appointed job at school, and with Cath stepping down, we need extra help to keep our playgroup running as successfully as it has been.

Damson Day

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.

Christmas party!

We are looking into the idea of producing packs of Christmas cards this year. Each pack will include your child’s very own drawing or painting. This means they can send personalised cards to loved ones this Christmas!  We are also considering individual aprons.

Nearly New Sale

  • Crosthwaite Kendal, LA8 8HT

This year, we ask for baby clothes to be bundled and sale prices to be reasonably low (for the under 1’s especially, with some exceptions). We hope this will encourage sales, and items will be easier to browse through. Any other ideas to improve the sale are welcome.  We will be asking for helpers soon – if you would like a role, please let Maria, Cath or Sarah know asap!  If you would like a selling code, then contact Mary Hutson (07849377017) or Emma Metcalfe at the school (015395 68471) previous sellers just use same code as last year.
