We have had an amazingly successful fundraising year with our fabulous events such as The Christmas Fayre, The Family Maypole Celebrations and our lovely relaxing ladies evening. Consequently, we have funds that we would like to spend. We have some thoughts however we would love to hear your ideas for new resources. Please let Mrs Homer know. Sadly, some of our committee will be leaving us in July and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their time and hard work and also to thank everyone for their support during the year. Our first meeting will be on the evening of Tuesday 24th September. We are a very friendly group of mums and staff and would love to welcome new faces and new ideas. Our first event to organise is our Autumn/Christmas Fayre on Saturday 16th November so come along to the meeting and help with the preparations.
Who we are
A core group of interested parents formed Friends of Duckling Nursery in 2004 to raise funds and organise social events. During these years, families have moved on but we have always continued to have new parents or returning families ready to take over.
Our current members are:
Staff: Mrs Sheila Homer, Miss Courtney Burnette, Miss Bethany Mattacks
Parents: Emma Jordan, Liz Garrod, Maggie Nichol, Sarah Bint, Petra Yildizgoren, Nicola Vincent, Charlotte Nairac
We need help!
The AGM is held during an evening in September at the nursery. Subsequent meetings throughout the year are held on designated Tuesday evenings, 8pm at the fox and goose pub (CM1 3SN). We would like to invite you to join us. The committee requires limited commitment, is very informal and lots of fun!
The members help to prepare, set up and run elements of each event. However please don’t feel pressure to do it all. If you can’t commit to attending the meetings, we are more than happy if you can just set up, help out on a stall or help clear away at the end.
Money raised by Friends of Ducklings has bought some wonderful resources and equipment including our new treehouse and tumble bar.
If you are interested or would simply like to know more about us and what you can do, please feel free to speak to any of us or get in touch.
We hope you can come and join us.
