CIO Letter to Parents - Sept 2018
26th September 2018
You may be aware from our Annual General Meeting, held in April, that Playgroup’s Parent Committee has been exploring the possibility of changing the legal structure of Tollerton Playgroup from an unincorporated association (i.e. a Charity) to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO).
This is a transition that many pre-school settings appear to be going through in a bid to attract more parents and carers onto their Parent Committees by protecting the trustees from any personal and financial liabilities.
The change will not affect the day to day running of our Playgroup; it is more something that will happen behind the scenes over the coming year. Our anticipated time frame for completion is by September 2019.
We will be holding an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) on Friday 5th October at 2pm at The Air Hostess, Tollerton, Nottingham, NG12 4EA, where the Parent Committee will discuss and vote on the proposal to become a CIO. All parents are invited to attend and find out more. Please complete and return the slip below.
Further information is also available on our website, www.tollertonplaygroup.com , under the blog section (see post entitled ‘Report on the implications of changing to a CIO,’ published on 23rd September 2018). We will be posting future updates on our website to keep everyone informed of the changes, so watch this space.
If you are unable to access the internet, there will be hard copies of the information in the lobby area of Playgroup. If you have any queries at all, please speak to Tracey or any member of staff or Committee member, or indeed, do get in touch with us via the contact details below.
