Blagdon Under Fives

Blagdon Under Fives is an umbrella group for Blagdon Pre-School and Blagdon Baby and Toddler Group. It is responsible for the running of these and provides the necessary funding and equipment that they require including paying the wages for the Pre-School staff.

Activities

A newsletter is produced and circulated to all parents once a term throughout the academic year with news and details of forthcoming events.

The group is constantly fundraising and events have previously included a fashion show, skittle night, soup lunch and quiz night as well as running many stalls including refreshments at the Pumping Station and a lucky dip at the school fete.

How to help

There are several ways you can get involved:

  • Give time
    Volunteers are always needed to help run the stalls, stands and events organised by the group and a couple of hours every now and then would be very much appreciated.
  • Join the Committee
    New members are always welcome to help with the organisation and running of the Pre-School and Baby and Toddler Group.
  • Give donations
    There are events throughout the year which are both entertaining and help to raise funds – even buying a few raffle tickets helps to provide the children with the facilities they need.
Meetings

There are regular committee meetings; details are posted in advance on the Pre-school notice board but if you don’t want to miss out sign up to the email grapevine underfives.grapevine@blagdon.org which keeps everyone informed of meetings plus Blagdon’s monthly ‘Ladies’ Nights’ arrangements.
