We are a committee run charity and our committee is an important and essential part of the playgroup. It is made up of parents/ extended family who wish to contribute to the running of the playgroup.  Without a committee in place we simply cannot run.  The committee meet about once a term with the staff to review and make decisions about matters concerning the playgroup, such as budgeting, purchasing of new equipment, special events etc.  It can be rewarding to feel more involved with your child's playgroup, to feel you are contributing to the group and learning more about it and to meet other parents at the same time.
