Christmas Party At the end of each year during the month of November the Committee organises a Christmas party for all members and their families to enjoy a fun day out.
Busy Bee We call on ALL members to join together to help clean, repair, sort and tidy everything in and outside the centre from cleaning baby toys, to repairing costumes and weeding the garden. Busy Bees are held every term during your session.
Fundraising As a not-for-profit group, we rely on membership fees and venue hire to generate an income to keep us operating. We also apply for grants to help us replenish the Play Factory's equipment and resources. As we are all busy Mum's we do not like to ask our members to Fundraise, but would appreciate your support when we do.
Committee Each year the members nominate to help run the Play Factory Playgroup. Each position is a volunteer position and we work together to maintain a safe and stimulating environment for our children. There are NO paid staff which means we rely on all families to assist in keeping our centre clean, safe and operating well. The Play Factory always welcomes new members on the Committee or feedback from the members to assist in the growth of the centre.
General Meetings General meetings are held every 6 weeks or so. The Committee meets to ensure that the Play Factory is running smoothly and discusses any matters that may arise or any spending that may need to be made. Members are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings.
AGM Our AGM is held at the beginning of each year. At this meeting we review our membership, present our yearly activities and accounts and elect our incoming Committee. Dates for this event are advertised to members prior to it occurring.
