AGM and a glass of wine!

**A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY **
On Friday 3rd October, the committee will be hosting a drinks evening which will also include our Annual General Meeting (venue and time to be confirmed and it will include wine!).
Please put this date in your diary and come along – we would love to see as many members there as possible – it is a nice opportunity to have a night out with other twin mums and dads and the chance to meet our committee members and if you wish, provide us with your views and opinions on how we might improve the support and information available to twins club members.
I don’t anticipate the AGM taking too long and it should hopefully give you an insight into how we run twins club.

URGENT- please help us to keep Friday playgroup open

I hope that you are enjoying the lovely sunshine (minus the extreme thunder and lightning storms we are experiencing!).

Firstly I would like to thank each and every helper for the past year and their commitment to keeping Friday’s 3Ts open,

However, it has come to that time of year again when we have alot of little ones leaving for preschool and we are once again in desperate need for someone (or a team of people) to take over the co-ordination of the playgroup and volunteers from September.

We do have a small list of people who are prepared to go on ‘rota’ to open and close the club, however its a Co-ordinator that we are in most need of. It doesn’t have to be someone that attends club every week, but it would be preferable to have someone that is available to be there (not necessarily every week)

Its not a huge responsibility, below are the duties:

- Playgroup Finances: tallying and banking weekly subs.
– Contact for:
Caretaker (playgroup closures/hall issues)
Volunteers
Newcomers to playgroup
BBTC Committee
– Updating rota and distributing it (one has already been prepared up to December)
– Ensuing there is enough tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits etc.
– Organising toy clean-ups twice a year
– Generally looking after the upkeep of the club’s admin (signs, signing in sheets etc)

Its vital to the success of the playgroup that these tasks are taken on – without a Co-ordinator (or team of Co-ordinators), the club will not be able to run and will have to close.

Unusually, 3Ts will be closed for August (at the request of the church), so next Friday 25th July is the final club before the hoped return date of 5th September.

If a Co-ordinator (or team) hasn’t come forward by end of August, we will have to close the playgroup.

Please, please do consider if you have help this playgroup – it has been running successfully for many years and it is a great way to give back to the club that has been valuable to many in making friends and sharing the ups and downs of twin parenthood – particularly when the children were young. It will be a terrible shame to have to close it.

If you can offer any help, please don’t hesitate to contact either myself (walderhannah@gmail.com – 07747846611 or Lauren laududley@googlemail.com – 07944124362.
