Minutes of Last Meeting
Members confirmed receipt of the minutes of the last meeting and approved their contents.
discussed PTA Accounts. The accounts have not changed since our last meeting.
Mrs Vaughan delivered a cheque for £1781 being the proceeds of our Sponsored
Event and a cheque for £17.55 from Easy Fund Raising.
Mr Warbrick advised members that we are now affiliated with School Angel which is an independent charity that provides donations to the School when certain retail websites are accessed using the shopping gateway link on the school website. Unlike Easy Fundraising, they do not deduct a fee.
The missing Gift Aid Inland Revenue form has now been returned via Mrs Hardy. Mrs Little is to submit change of contact forms so that her name is added then resubmit the claim.
The Fun Day is
to be held on Thursday 17th July. Mr Warbrick has arranged bouncy castles and
the Fire Service will be bringing their climbing wall free of charge, arcade
games can be played in the computer room and there will be lots of other
PTA to provide 370 Ice Lollies. Mrs Finlay to purchase.
The bring and buy sale originally planned to coincide with the fun day is to be amalgamated with the Christmas Fair.
The reading bus grand opening has also been postponed until the Autumn to ensure work is complete.
No new requests.
Any Other Business
expressed concern that there are still no signs or road markings at the end of
the back path to indicate it is used by school children and Mrs Hemsley
suggested a roadside barrier is required to ensure that children running down
the slope do no end up in the road. Mr Warbrick is to discuss these issues with
Councillor Marjorie Rae.
The back path has now been cleared with the help of Councillor Rae.
PTA members were lucky enough to be given a tour of the reading bus. Members agreed this was a fantastic facility for the children with lovely views.
Our AGM is scheduled for Monday 29TH September at 5.30pm.
Donations of cakes would be appreciated!
