Welcome to the website of Melbourn Playgroup and Out of School Club

Dear all parents and carers,

We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Monday 21st January at 7:45pm. Drinks will be available from 7:30pm. All parents with children at Playgroup and/or MOOS are very welcome to attend. You will get to hear about our year, have a look around our building, and meet our current trustees and some of the staff. This is an important meeting which we are required to hold annually, so please do come if you possibly can.
There will also be an opportunity to appoint additional trustees at the AGM – as a charity we are governed by trustees, who are ultimately responsible for the running of the charity. If this is something you would be interested in, please read the guide to volunteering as a charity trustee and complete the nomination form by Wednesday 16th January at the latest.
