Ickleford Pre-School – Urgent Appeal for Trustees
Ickleford Pre-School is a Committee-run Charity, relying on a group of volunteer committee members (Trustees) to keep it operational. We are urgently seeking members to join our Committee to ensure the continued running of the Pre-School. Without a full committee, the Pre-School would have to close. You do not have to be a parent of a child at Pre-School to be a committee member and indeed we would welcome the skills and expertise of other members of the community to assist with the increasing demands of running the Pre-School. Anyone can join although we are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with the following experience and skills: Marketing, Finance, People Management / HR, Early Years Education, Fundraising & Community Engagement, and Grant & Funding Applications.

If you are interested in joining the Committee, please contact Beth Alcorn, Chairperson, via email to chair@icklefordpreschool.org.

There will be a fully licensed cash bar and a raffle with great prizes. To purchase tickets, please email: quizandchips@gmail.com. The event poster can be viewed here.
