The 4th Party in the Park planning meeting was held on 13 April with Jo Morrison, Clare Sampson, Adrian Birch, David Knight, Steve Greenhalgh, Bev Jane, Dee Finch, Bev Lewis and Simon Hutchings in attendance.
Lots of ideas and actions were discussed, including:
Tickets: Will be printing the tickets ASAP and start selling by May at the latest. We will announce on the website and social media when tickets are going on sale.
Booked: Confirmed all the following have been booked – Donkey Rides, Police van, lighting and generators, Minion characters, DJ.
Raffle update: Lots of great prizes coming in. Top prizes will be balloon flight, Vitamix and £100 cash. We will also be selling raffle tickets prior to the event this year.
Food Tenders: Adrian has contacted the winning bid vendors, they need to respond by end of April to confirm attendance. We’ll then let everyone know all the lovely food on offer.
Bar: The refrigerated van we planned to use to help chill drinks has fallen though so we need to source another – can any of our readers help out?
Bake Off: Bev J and Izzy are working on this. It will be a “Space” themed and there will be adults and child categories. A zorbing party has been sourced as one of the prizes.
Fizzpop Science: Dee has been in touch with this company that does science shows and workshops for kids. Everyone agreed this sounds like a great idea so will book them.
Crafting: Dee and Bev J will run a free junk modelling craft activity for kids with a space theme to tie in with the Bake Off.
Playbus: Agreed to fund playbus so we can offer it as another free activity for the daytime. It has a soft play area inside for youngsters plus a karaoke machine and games at other end for older kids.
Charity: Discussed what we would like to spend profit on. Several ideas on good causes within the community were suggested. See the What Good Cause Should We Support? post for full details.
NEXT MEETING: Thursday 12 May, 8pm, The Bell Inn – everybody welcome.
