The latest planning meeting for Creech Party in the Park took place last night at The Bell Inn with Jo, Adrian, Simon, Jane and Bev in attendance.
Buskers Corner: We are hoping to have an area in the marquee for buskers to perform in the daytime. The marquee will be setup with tables and chairs for people to relax and enjoy their cream teas – so some laid back music would be ideal! We’ll have a small stage for buskers to perform on. Do you know anyone that would like to do a short set? Would you like to bring your guitar along and give us a tune? Now’s the chance to show Creech your musical talents and maybe earn some cash in the process! Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved.
Volunteers: We are still in need of more volunteers to help out. Could you spare half an hour during the daytime event to help organise family games in the central arena such as Tug of War, Wheelbarrow Races and Egg Toss? We have all the equipment, it’s just manpower we are short of!
Groups/charities: We would love to get more local groups and charities involved – are you involved with any organisation that would like a stall for promotion or to raise funds? There is no charge for non commercial stalls and we even have some games equipment we could lend you to raise money (eg cork guns, play your cards right set, stocks). Please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or complete our form on the contact page.
Stalls/activities update: More stalls and activities have been confirmed, including: The Baptist Church will be putting on a puppet show for children and doing crafts; a stall called Disneypops Delights will be selling toys; the cub/scouts will be running a coconut shy; the Pre-School will be doing cream teas and facepainting; homemade and upcycled vintage and shabby chic goods will be on sale by Mrs M Makes; kitchen goods will be on sale from The Pampered Chef; hobby kits will be available from Pixelated; yummy fruit and veg will be available from Riverford Organic Fruit and Veg; there will be lots of fun at Ruishton FC stalls including a crockery smash, football shootout and a guess the balloons in the car competition and Community First Responders will have a stall raising awareness of their role.
Tickets: Tickets for the Afterdark event were on sale during the meeting and we had a few people come along to buy theirs. Tickets went on sale less than a week ago and we have already sold 130 – so please don’t leave it too long before you buy yours. Don’t forget tickets will be on sale at the Creech School Fayre on 16 May 11.30am-2.30pm or email email@example.com for full details of how to purchase tickets. Please note that child tickets can only be purchased by an adult.
Parking: We realise that parking is limited around the Rec Ground so we urge everyone to walk to the event and leave their cars at home. The car park will be strictly reserved for disabled badge holders and stallholders on a first come basis so unfortunately a parking spot can not be guaranteed even if you do hold a blue badge.
The next planning meeting will be on Wednesday 3 June at 7.30pm at The Bell Inn, everyone welcome, and afterdark tickets will once again be on sale (unless we have sold out by then!).
