 Our Committee
We are governed by the Pre-School Learning Alliance constitution which means our parent-run committee must have 3 officers (Chair, Secretary & Treasurer) and between 2 and 9 additional members. If there are not enough parents to make up the committee, then we would be regarded as non-constitutional and be forced to close. You can download a copy of our constitution here

The committee support the day to day running of Chestnuts, including ensuring the building is safe inside and out and is well maintained, applying for charity grants, as well as working with Wokingham Borough Council, Ofsted and the Charity Commission to ensure we are meeting our educational, legal and financial obligations.


We meet monthly, to discuss matters arising during the previous month and to plan for any new activities. As parents of children currently at Chestnuts, this is our way of helping to ensure a bright future for such a wonderful place, however we are always looking for more volunteers to join us.

We are pleased to announce our current committee members are as follows:

  • Louise Bull - Chair
  • Helen Eastwood - Vice Chair
  • Suryakala Venkatraman - Treasurer
  • Mya Tun – Bookkeeper
  • Karen Kennedy – Secretary
  • Chris Sharp – Maintenance
