PIP 16 – 5th Planning Meeting

The 5th planning meeting was held on 12 May with Jo Morrison, Clare Sampson, Adrian Birch, Nigel, David Knight, Steve Greenhalgh, Bev Jane, Dee Finch, Avril Nelson , Colin & Gemma, Simon Hutchings, Ricky and  Rory from RDV FIlm in attendance.

    • Food Traders. Unfortunately we have been let down by the hog roast supplier and are struggling to find a replacement.  If you know of a company that may be interested in attending, please contact us. Don’t worry though, you will not go hungry as we still have BBQ, fish n chips, bakery and curry stalls confirmed for day and evening.
    • Sponsorship. We’re very pleased to confirm we have had several cash donations from local companies.  Huge thanks go to WJ (£500), IDN (£300), Redrow (£150), County Hardwoods (£100).
    • Bake Off.  More plans for the Bake Off will be announced soon, but for now get your thinking caps on for a spaced themed cake competition. Thanks to 9 year old Izzy and her Mum Bev for organising this.
    • Junk Modelling. Another enterprising 9 year old, Nathanial, is also helping us out by organising a junk modelling stall with a little help from Mum Dee.  See his test rocket for his Lego man below – awesome!

Sponsors, stalls and displays update

Huge thankyou to Gillards Transport for once again providing a lorry (free of charge) to use as the stage. This made a massive difference to the success of the event last year as it meant there was plenty of space to see the band and room to dance!

Stand Against Speed

New for this year is local charity Stand Against Speed which will have little cars for children to enjoy while raising funds to educate 17-24 year olds on the dangers of speeding.

Willows of Somerset will be providing a delicious hamper of goodies and Neil Robertson Plumbing will be providing a boiler service for the raffle. Forever Living will have a stall selling a range of Aloe Vera products.
