This book is intended as a guide for those involved in, or seeking to organise small to medium sized community events such as fairs, village fetes and town centre celebrations
It is based on my personal experience as Project Manager on a wide variety of community events as well as Christmas Lights, Farmers Markets, Continental markets and late night shopping events.
For 8 years I worked closely with Council Officers, the Emergency Services and Highways Agency.
No matter how small or large the event many different agencies need to be consulted or advised. If you have never had any contact with the above it may appear at first that everyone is pulling in a different direction but each has its own set of priorities. A confrontational approach leads nowhere and the closer as a unit the group is able to work, understanding and respect for each other’s problems will grow. Everyone wants the event to succeed and a good organiser will be able to mould the different elements into a positive network.
