Fun Day

Hi all

We are looking to do an open/fun day for our pre-school one weekend in the summer. We are mostly doing it to inform people we are there as we are in a very small village. But we are hoping to raise a little bit of money to buy some new toys for the children!

We have got some of our parents on board already wanting to help. We are planning to have a bouncy castle, sale stalls, games etc.

Are we allowed to do this or do we have to be registered with anywhere or anything?

 

Thanks :1b

You might need a lottery licence from your council, especially if you're having a raffle, you might also need to check if you need a licence to sell or provide alcohol, and food hygiene as its open to the public. I imagine its all very simple. Hope you raise lots :)

Just thinking about some experience of Village events - we have needed Public liability insurance, various licences as already mentioned by Rea and Health and Safety risk assessments.......

If you are having a bouncy castle - might be worth asking the company supplying/running it for a copy their insurance similarly for any stalls run by 'professionals'.....

Good luck with it all! :1b

If you are in a village hall or similar you will probably find they are already covered for most of it.. our local one has all the public liability and insurances already for events like this by people who hire the halls..

when I last looked into a raffle it was fine if tickets were sold and the drawn at the same event.. no selling tickets in advance.. but would check with your local council rules for a need for a licence..

We avoided alcohol , teas and coffees etc we were already cleared with environmental health for the setting to provide snacks and food to the children so that was covered..

Thanks Inge. We are doing it at the village hall and they do have public liability insurance but will have a chat with them anyway.

We only plan on serving tea, coffee and juice and we are registered with environmental health :1b

you can sell raffle tickets as long as you dont in advance (as said) you can get one off drinks licences for events from your council for a small fee ...you won't need first aid points unless it is a large event...bouncy castles should come with insurance....but they will be able to tell you what you need for them (they sometimes insist that you have one of their staff...and pay for them!) one off charity events do not need food hygiene certificates. You may need to consider parking issues.
