Playgroup may face closure
The Byron Bay Playgroup is in danger of folding unless a volunteer co-ordinator can be found.
Last year's co-ordinator, Sue Flynn, has resigned and unless a new co-ordinator can be found, the playgroup will not restart for 2009.
The playgroup had resumed last year after a two-year hiatus and was held every Tuesday from 9.30am to 11.30am at the Presbyterian Church Hall in Byron Bay.
About 20 mums and their children attended the playgroup last year.
Ms Flynn said she had resigned because her children were now in day care.
“The playgroup, which is for newborns to age five, is all set up, and is a member of the NSW Playgroup Association,” she said.
“It's easy to run and in a good financial position.
“It's a parent-run group and everyone helps.”
Ms Flynn said the playgroup was well-equipped with toys.
Parents pay $3 a session.
“If we can't find a co-ordinator then the playgroup won't resume for 2009,” Ms Flynn said.
