The Wacky Club Committee

The Wacky Club is run by a committee of volunteer parents, who contribute their time to ensure the smooth running of the club. Please contact us if you would like to help out on the committee or offer your time and expertise.

Tamsin Mann
Chair
I joined the Wacky committee in September 2016, and have just been elected Chair. Astrid and Felix go to Wacky twice a week and really enjoy their time there. I work 3 days a week as Head of Policy for a training organisation, so I have often taken on policy updates for Wacky too. Being on the committee has been a good way to find out more about how the club is run, help with many different aspects for staff and setting improvement, and just support the lovely people who are looking after my children whilst I’m at work!
Stefano Berri
Treasurer
I joined the committee in 2018 taking over the role of treasurer from Jules. I have two children at Wacky and I decided to volunteer and give some help so that Wacky can carry on being such a wonderful and essential place for our kids. As Treasurer I will be responsible for approving payments, liaising with the administrator, reviewing the monthly income and expenditure account, and dealing with ad hoc finance matters, including the annual financial statements. On my day job I write computer programs to analyse data. I hope my skills will be helpful to keep the numbers in order, but I suspect I will end up looking after tables in Excel.
Laura Whitworth
Secretary
I joined the Wacky Club committee November 2018. I work full-time in scientific research, so it is vital that my two children have an after school option for a few days a week. They love going to Wacky and I can see how hard the staff work to make it a fun, safe and welcoming environment for them, which inspired me to join the committee and lend a hand with the running behind the scenes.
Holly Barr
Committee Member
My daughter uses Wacky for after school and holiday club and my son will use the club from next year. I joined the committee as Wacky is essential to enable me to work, and the club cannot run without the committee. I attend committee meetings, compose the newsletter once a term and update the Wacky Facebook page. This takes about 4 hours per month in total. I’ve found the committee really fun and it’s great to make a difference to the community by supporting the club that is vital to so many families.
Cris Travieso-Blanch
Committee Member
I joined the committee in 2019 to help with the club’s website and comms but also to give something back. My daughters have been going to Wacky every school holiday since they were in year 1, and we also relied on the club for after-school care two days a week for a long while. The team of play-workers has changed throughout the years, but the safe and positive atmosphere hasn’t. When you arrive to collect your children and they are all smiles and not in a hurry to leave you can tell they’ve had a good time!
