Sadly to-day daughter and I decided to quit the Group.We were doing all the work,paperwork,treasuer,sorting toys out etc.Thought we had a super group as it was so organized but very few parents would sign up!The crunch came,I was away looking after new granddaughter,other Grandson had chicken pox .
Quite a few Mums moaned we were not there and what were they getting for their money?Although daughter had arranged for someone to take healthy snack in ie fruit,the Mums said their children did not like fruit only biscuits (they had eaten them for the last 7 weeks!)
Some of the Mums phoned daughter to say they were not coming back!
I was doing this to keep the group open because if no one from the village runs it the cost goes from £8 to £35!!
In the meantime the mothers who will not return have set up another group and asked me for help! Sorry not again!!
Unfortunately this seems to be the way community groups are going...people love the idea of a local group run by local parents, but are not prepared to share the work loadthis means it is left to the same dedicated people again and again..aka Chloe.
Thanks Ladies for your usual lovely support! Hubby and I have both put so much in the community he as Chairperson of the Parish Council and I as chairperson of the M and T group we both have failed.My news years resoultion is get involved but not as Chairperson!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:pr oposetoast:
