Kippen Street Fayre – volunteers required

Roll up….roll up - volunteers required to get our Bottle Stall off the ground for this year’s Kippen Street Fayre – check your email for details, or contact us direct. Look forward to hearing from you!

Don’t forget…..wellies!

Please remember to bring wellies and a warm / waterproof coat for your children at Playgroup this week – we’re hoping to visit a local garden (complete with pond) that children have enjoyed in prior years.

Playgroup & Toddlers AGM – Tuesday 13th May

The AGM for Playgroup & Toddlers has been set for Tuesday 13th May, 7:30pm @ The Cross Keys.

A key element of the AGM is the election of new office bearers for the Playgroup & Toddlers Committee. The group will require a new Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Toddlers rep. Job descriptions for these roles can be found following the links on your left.

Kippen Playgroup and Toddlers has been running continually now for well in excess of 20 years and is a fantastic resource within the village and surrounding area for Mums, babies and children to meet and support each other, making life-long friends along the way.

To ensure its ongoing existence it is essential that people come forward to take over these roles. Please feel free to talk to any member of the committee if you wish to know more about any aspect of any role. We’re all very approachable, love to chat and would love to hear from you!

Playgroup Easter Break…..Toddlers will be OPEN

Friday 4th April is the last day of term for Playgroup before the Easter break. The Summer term starts back on Tuesday 22nd April.

Don’t forget – Toddlers will be open as usual on Thursday mornings 10:15 til 12 noon in the Village Hall throughout the holidays. Tea and cake anyone?

Kippen Street Fayre Fundraiser

Kippen Street Fayre (Saturday 14th June) constitutes the next big fundraising event in the Playgroup & Toddlers calendar (who can forget Iain McKinnon sporting the ever so manly pink princess hat last year?!).

In order for us to build on last year’s success we need to get an organising sub-committee group together – which is where you come in – drop a line ASAP to Michelle Hewines in the first instance if you’re able to help.

Next Committee Meeting Weds 26th February

The next Committee Meeting for Kippen Playgroup & Toddlers is tomorrow night (Weds 26th Feb) @ 8pm. These meetings are open so all are welcome – Michelle Hewines is hosting.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Welcome back!

Happy New Year to you all and we look forward to welcoming you back to Playgroup and Toddlers this week. The updated Duty Rotas will be available to view shortly by following the links on the left hand side.

Christmas Market Success

A MASSIVE thank you to EVERYONE for the combined effort that was the Christmas Market – those that volunteered and baked, those who came, who bought raffle tickets, who met Santa – who all together made for an amazing day and raised a whopping total of £3,200!!!

It wouldn’t have been possible without you….THANK YOU!
