AGM – 8th November 2018

AGM – 8th November 2018

AGM Letter 2018



We are excited to announce that we are nearing the end of the long process of Incorporation of the charity and invite you to an Extraordinary General Meeting of Portishead Playgroups – on Tuesday 8thMay at 8pm at Brampton Pre-School (the full details are attached).

The purpose of the meeting is to approve the minutes from the AGM (also attached) and to approve the new constitution (which is also attached) and this will allow us to move forward and apply to The Charity Commission to make these changes, which include our name change to Portishead Pre-School.  This has been a process going on for several years and the committee have put many hours into this process.  In order for the meeting to go ahead and for us to move to the next stage we need to have representation from a percentage of all families, without enough representation the meeting would have to be rescheduled and would further delay the process.

There has been great excitement about children receiving their school places recently, but with lots of children moving onto school in September we will be losing a several members of our committee at the end of the summer term, until the AGM in the Autumn when we are able to recruit more. Therefore, the EGM is an opportunity for us to co-opt one person onto the committee and we would welcome the support! The committee are responsible for the fundraising and business side of the pre-school and we are really well supported by the team at Brampton and Hilltop.  We meet termly and your contribution is totally dependent on how much you wish to take on.  If you would like to join the committee or would like more information please get in touch –


We will, of course, be providing cheese and wine and we look forward to seeing you there.


The Portishead Playgroups Committee
