The Thorny Subject of Money.....

In an ideal world, we wouldn't be would be lovely to run this group as a free co-operative....

Unfortunately, we have to hire the venue (albeit on very favourable terms), and we'd like to be able to fund resources such as slings, nappies and books for our libraries in the future, so we have decided that we do need to ask for a donation each meeting.

We have set the donation at £1 per family, payable ONLY if you are able to do so. We don't want anyone to feel that they can't attend a meeting because they don't have the cash. No-one will be chasing you for money - there will be a small pot for your donation, but only you will know whether you have paid. If you have more, feel free to give more - if you haven't got it, don't worry about it - ever!

We have already had a donation towards the group which will more than cover the first meeting, so it looks as though the system works already!

Obviously, we will periodically review this, and take a consensus, but for the time being, we hope this is acceptable to everyone!
