We hold one committee meeting a month on the 3rd Tuesday evening of the month. Committee members are asked to try to attend at least every other meeting. We would also ask you to help plan and run some of the special events we participate in during the year.
Are you organised, do you have good ideas to share and could you help with event organising?
We are looking for parents to help us plan and run regular activities and occasional events.
Parent Committee members help support the youth workers and volunteer team to plan the services and a programme of events being run to support the young people in Congresbury. Your assistance is greatly appreciated in organising and running fund raising events. Events could include:
quiz night at the local pub
stalls and raffle sales at the Village fete
stall at the Christmas fayre
annual Youth Partnership awards evening
family fun events on Millennium Green
