Can you share your top summer fair tips?


Margaret Bent: ‘Send key committee members around the stalls once the fair’s running to ensure all volunteers are alright and know what they’re doing – if they have a horrible experience, they’ll never do it again! Make sure these committee members have a list of volunteers and their mobile numbers so they can chase anyone who doesn’t turn up for their shift. And always make sure all committee members have charged their mobile phones!’ Amanda Loach: ‘Have fl oating people who can problem solve, fetch equipment and cover for anyone needing a break. In anticipation of my stepping down – plus to make life easier next year – we have a written plan of the fair in place for my successor.’


Penny Lafferty: ‘When allocating jobs, make sure at least one person sees the job through from start to fi nish.’ Hayley Lake: ‘Strategically place offerings in places people will feel obliged to spend, i.e. have someone selling balloons at the entrance gate – what easier way to sell than when people already have their cash out!’ Lynsey Pledger: ‘Never assume that parents know what is going on, even if you do the same every year. Don’t be afraid to try something new. If it doesn’t work, then at least you know you’ve tried it.’ Gail Roe: ‘I have a “tool belt”, with scissors, sellotape, radio, my phone, Blu-Tack, water, string and raffl e tickets (so I’m always ready to sell!). I also attach carrier bags in case I come across any rubbish.’
