Why it's a great idea:

The following four objectives: • organise a series of events over the summer that will allow all in our community to come together and as a result to strengthen and improve the social, emotional, physical, and mental wellbeing of those taking part. • to give all cohorts in our village community an opportunity to engage in creative and/or physical activities but also to create occasions with an environment that enables all to engage in social interaction and to benefit from the well-being that that creates. • to support local businesses by increasing footfall in the village that will increase trade on the days the events take place and as a result increase awareness of what our local businesses provide to increase their trade in the longer term. • to raise funds that can be used to support developments at the Athletic Ground and if appropriate in the wider community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Hire of Marquee including tables and chairs
  • Hire of Generator
  • Cover event equipment insurance:
  • Provide First Aid (4 days)
  • Produce a ‘Summer Fun’ brochure
  • Hire Lighting, Sound System and Staging for inside the marquee
