Hints and tips

  • What’s the idea? Write down the details of the event including who’s doing it, what you’re doing, when and where it’s going to happen, and why. Does anything clash with the date and location? Do you need permission?
  • Use existing skills and make it fun, like Joy May did!
  • Many hands make light work. Rope in some friends or family who can help you.
  • Make a clear budget and keep to it.
  • Promote it with posters, and through local press and radio.
  • Thank everyone who helps you.
  • Build on success. Can you make it a regular event?
