Fundraising Cake Sale

Dear Parents,

On the morning of Saturday 29th September we are holding one of our popular fund raising Cake Stalls outside Kerridge’s Butchers in Nayland and we are asking all of our Woodland Corner parents if they are able to help, either by making something delicious for us to sell or helping on the day – or both! Helping on the day is a lot of fun and an ideal way for new parents to meet other parents and members of our Committee. We will have a rota on the door in the lobby for volunteers to put their name on so you would not need to commit yourself for more than an hour.

Cakes can be dropped off at Woodland Corner on Friday 28th September or brought along to the stall early on the morning (by 9am please). Could we ask that all produce is labelled with exactly what it is and that tins and trays are also labelled clearly so that they can be returned to you afterwards.

Experience has taught us that cakes with heavily iced toppings melt very quickly in the glaring Nayland sun (yes, really!) so it might be better avoid those kind of creations.

Thank you in anticipation!

Playgroup Sessions!

We have availability at all of our Playgroup sessions for children from 2 years old.

Up to 15 hours a week funding is available for children born on or before 31/8/2009 and for younger children where parents are in receipt of certain benefits.

Please call us to arrange a visit or to get more information. Alternatively come along to our Open Afternoon from 2.30pm on Friday 28th September.


Notice is given of an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”)
Of Woodland Corner (“The Association”)
to be held on Wednesday 3 October at 8.00 pm at Woodland Corner at which the
following resolution will be considered:

THAT the members having previously resolved that it is in the interests of the Association to convert from an unincorporated association to a limited liability company established as a company limited by guarantee and for this purpose the Committee are incorporating a new limited liability company (registered number to be confirmed) a copy of whose memorandum and articles of association are produced to the meeting and it is resolved that (subject to first registering the new company as a charity and obtaining the consent of the Pre-school Learning Alliance and the Charity Commission) the Association be dissolved (date to be confirmed) and to transfer the entire undertaking of the Association into the new company limited by guarantee, whose first Committee members shall be those persons being the current members of the Committee (subject to any changes in the interim). The Committee is hereby authorised and instructed on behalf of the Association to do all such things and to incur such costs as shall be required to give effect to this resolution as the Committee shall determine.

c/o Woodland Corner

In simple terms! this EGM is just part of the process for Woodland Corner to become a charitable company limited by guarantee. This is recommended by the Pre-School Learning Alliance because it protects our committee from any financial liability. Because, as parents, you are effectively members of Woodland Cornerwe need to give notice of the EGM so please just let Caroline know if you have any questions or would like to attend.
