The 3rd Party in the Park planning meeting was held last week. Jo Morrison, Adrian Birch, David Knight, Mina Guest, Steve Greenhalgh, Colin & Gemma Hodges, Bev Jane, Dee Finch, Avril Nelson and Nigel were in attendance.
Lots of ideas and actions were discussed, including:
Bar: Adrian has applied for the licence. Steve has sourced a refrigerated van to help with keeping stock cold. David is in discussion with local brewery for good some good deals on beer.
Food Tenders: Adrian updated us on the companies that have applied for hot food pitches, and the team decided which ones were successful. There will be: burgers, fish n chips, hog roast, pizza and curry stalls. We will advertise full details of suppliers in due course.
Charity: This year we are hoping to donate to a local charity, or arrange a charitable event for villagers. Suggestions were OAP Christmas lunch or commemorative coins for school children. Committee and volunteers are to come up with ideas and we would welcome suggestions from the community. Please comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Creech Bake Off: Bev’s 9 year old daughter has taken this over! She wants to make it a space theme. She has already sourced 2 amazing prizes – £50 Lakeland voucher and a family ticket to Bristol aquarium (worth around £40). Well done Izzy, this is fantastic stuff.
Raffle: There are some amazing raffle prizes being donated, including: hot air balloon rides (worth £300), Vitamix (worth £500), Champagne and chocolates, massage/reflexology session, and a manicure. Huge thank you to our sponsors: Aerosaurus, HomeInstead, Purple Rose and Nails by Lindz for some of these fab prizes.
