A NORTON playgroup is looking for volunteers to join its committee.

Brooklyn Preschool Playgroup has been providing a nursery care for more than 30 years.

Originally based at Brooklyn Youth Centre, the playgroup has a purpose made area within the Ryedale Community Leisure Centre in Scarborough Road.

Chairman Vicky Lamb said: “We currently have about 75 children attending various sessions throughout the week, enjoying both indoor and outdoor areas. At this time we are aiming to build our existing committee and are looking to the wider community to do this.

"You may be a parent, grandparent, local resident or friend of a friend - if you are interested and can spare one or two hours per term for meetings with additional here and there fundraising time then we want to hear from you.

"We run a relaxed and friendly committee with the children’s playgroup experience at the centre of everything we do.

"Obviously our children grow with us and move on into the school setting which gives us an ever changing input from parents.

"This is great as we get constant new ideas from them, but we would love some local people who can bring wider experiences and hopefully a longer stability to our dedicated parent/staff committee.”
