Following the EGM (Monday 20th May) we can confirm that (subject to first obtaining the consent of the Pre-school Learning Alliance) The Charity – Portishead Playgroups will be dissolved (with effect from midnight on 31st August) and to transfer the entire undertaking of The Charity into the new charitable incorporated organisation – Portishead Pre-School [registered charity number 1180880].
We were overwhelmed with support at the May Fair! We raised around £770 – all of which goes back into supporting and improving the settings. Thank you to everyone who supported the event – running stalls, donating prizes, general preparation. Without the support of the team, the parents and the community this event would not have been possible. Thank you!
An extra thank you to Priority Football who ran a 2 hour football session for all the children!

Each setting will be holding a cake sale and raffle on Thursday 28th March.
All cakes will be 50p and all raffle tickets will be £1. Each setting will have a separate raffle with the similar prizes. First Prize will be a vase of paper flowers from Pretty Petals by Emma (photo below) and Second Prize is six cupcakes from Sarah C – photo to follow.
Brampton’s event will run at the end of the school day (3.15 – 3.45pm) in the entrance to the building.
Hilltop’s event will run from 8.45am until 3.45pm. This is due to the number of Hilltop parents collecting throughout the day. There will be member of the committee periodically at the stall – if you find no-one manning the stall, please use the honesty box or contact a member of staff.
Both raffles will be drawn at 4pm and winners will be notified by the following day (29th March).
