Rain protection has been organised. Refunds will be provided if the entire event is cancelled due to stormy weather. If the event progresses, strictly at the discretion of Blantyre Community Committee, refunds WILL NOT BE given. Refunds WILL NOT be given for any non attendance, regardless of reason. For clarity, your Stall payment is NON REFUNDABLE if the event progresses.
Blantyre Community Committee cannot be responsible for how much stock you sell or the popularity of your stall. You are responsible for what you sell and what time you pack up at. Blantyre Community Committee takes NO responsibility for duplication of other stalls that may be selling something similar or the same as you and you are expected to have read the list of confirmed bookings and what they sell, before you decide to progress to payment.
Your Stock and belongings are solely your responsibility. Anything you leave out or on display is at your own risk. There is no daytime security at the event, although first aid is on hand.
Wheelie Bins will be located throughout the venue but please take all your rubbish and empties away with you afterwards. The pitch area must be left totally clear at the end of the event. There will be a £20 fine to any pitch holder who has left it in a mess as we need to pay to dispose of the rubbish and clear it up. If you need assistance just ask but please do not dump full bin bags.
Any problems, the Committee can instantly be contacted on Facebook
There will be a hot food and also a tea room. The nearest ATM facilities are nearby at ASDA, so better to come with cash for any purchases.
Venue postcode: Stonefield Public Park (also called McAnulty Park) & Blantyre Leisure Centre, Low Blantyre, just off Glasgow Road, Blantyre, G72.
There will be parking restrictions. As a stall holder you will be able to drive into the park, offload your goods (you may have a short distance to go from your vehicle to indoor pitch so please be prepared for this). Then you will be able to park your car nearby at the red ash park. UNLESS you have a blue badge you will NOT be able to park your car within the grounds. Please bear this in mind. A pitch layout plan with your pitch number will be issued by email about a week prior to the event.
As this is a fundraising event for the community and we also allow some charities to fundraise on the day as goodwill we cannot allow commercial stall holders to run large tombolas on their stalls. The pitch is for selling your goods.
Also we have facepainting specifically set up so no facepainting at individual stalls either please. Temporary tattoos are permitted.
Selling of soft drinks, teas and coffees is not permitted. As with hot food, this service provided exclusively by the Committee.
Silly string is extremely difficult to clear from the park so (ideally) no selling of this.
Fireworks, alcohol and tobacco products are also strictly disallowed.
