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.
Matthew Forrest
Committee Member
I joined the Wacky Club committee in November 2019. I work full-time in scientific research, so I need Wacky Club for when we can't be at the school gate at the end of the day. My son loves going to Wacky and I'm hoping my daughter too will next year. I'm looking forward to helping the hard working staff and volunteers make Wacky even better for all our children.
Florian Merkle
Committee Member
I have joined the Wacky committee in November 2020. Our son Max (now in Y3) has benefitted from the great environment at Wacky, and since my partner Gwen and I both work full-time, we’re also grateful to have the option to keep him in the presence of his friends and classmates a few hours longer. I work as a biologist and group leader at Cambridge, so hopefully a few of my skills will help contribute to keep Wacky a safe, strong, and successful organisation.
Rachel Bateman
Committee Member
I have joined the Wacky committee in November 2020. My daughter Florrie has started in Reception this year and has been going to the Wacky Club full time from her first few weeks. She loves it there and it's clear that the staff make sure it is a well led and caring environment. I also like the opportunity it gives her to meet children from other year groups. Florrie also has been to the holiday club for a couple of days, and I anticipate making good use of this in the future as well! I work full time as a Senior Assessment Advisor at an assessment organisation, and I was previously a secondary school teacher, and I'd like to support the running of the club in any way I can.
