Summer Fair

Two weeks to go!

Setting up

We discussed set-up times on the day:

  • Lead organisers will arrive around 9am
  • General volunteers should come around 10am
  • Stall-holders preparing their own stalls should come around 10:30
  • Stall-holders whose stalls have been set-up for them should arrive at 11:45
  • Public start arriving at 12:30
  • Volunteers will receive a plan of the fair layout before the day so they know what’s going where
  • First arrivers on the day will put out tables and put signs on them so it’s clear where everything is
  • We need stall-holders to be self-sufficient as far as possible
  • We’ll also be setting up signs and whatever else we can on Friday 5th July

Plant sale

  • We discussed price range for plant stall so Cinem can decide what to buy. We thought a range of around 50p to £5


  • Naomi has been asking teachers
  • She suggested asking the sports coaches
    • Coach Gatti came into the room so we asked him and he said yes!

Scandinavian food stall

  • Lotta gave us some updates on the Scandinavian food stall plans including coffee
  • Other treats:
    • Cinnamon buns
    • Chocolate & coconut balls (in a cooler box)
  • We agreed to spend approximately £30 on a coffee machine
  • They will need sugar & milk
  • Lotta to arrive at 10:30 to set up stall


  • Water fountains
  • Water in jugs at food stalls

  • More juice would be welcome

Plant sale
