Christmas Events 2016

It’s certainly been a busy few weeks over this years festive period, but we can finally sit down and enjoy Christmas! This years Christmas started nice and early on the 5th of November at our “Warm up to Christmas” event in Tavistock Town Hall. This event is always a great one to start the festive

The Dartmoor Zoo Wedding Fair 2016 – Sept

Our final wedding fair of the year was at Dartmoor Zoo. After the first DZP wedding fair being beautiful sunshine, we were unfortunately faced with wind and rain. Trusty Dartmoor weather! Guests arrived and were given a free goody bag, which included a free copy of SW Bride magazine, Always & Forever magazine, Confetti magazine, a

Saltash Mayor and Saltash.net pupils share delight with their regenerated gardens

We were approached recently by Endsliegh Garden Centre who recently spent the Summer regenerating the gardens at Saltash.net’s “The Zone” after they were vandalised. Endsleigh wanted an opening of the gardens organised, so we got to work, organised press (Cornish Times, Saltash Observer, Plymouth Hearld, LoveSaltash, Cornish Guardian, Ivybridge Gazette, South Hams Gazette, Plymouth Parents

#LoveSaltash Market – Saltash Festival of Arts

After previously holding the #LoveSaltash markets in Wesley Road, Saltash we were asked to run a one off street market as part of the Saltash Festival of Arts. Learning from our previous Saltash street markets, we moved it to Lower Fore Street (much to the delight of the majority of shops on Lower Fore Street!)

Who even needs an event organiser?!

“The volunteer committee has been running this event successfully for the past twenty years, why would we need to hire an event organiser?!” That is something I hear often when suggesting hiring an event organiser. It’s a huge barrier to break through when dealing with long standing events, but once the committee see the benefits

Saltash Regatta & Waterside Festival 2016

The Saltash Regatta and Waterside Festival has been and gone this past weekend and we were very lucky with the weather! After panicking all week with forecast thunder storms, we were blessed with a beautifully sunny day on the Saturday and a bright day on the Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately it was terrible weather on the

Dartmoor Zoo Wedding Fair 2016 – May

We returned to Dartmoor Zoo for their first wedding fair of 2016. We were blessed with beautiful weather which is a nice change from the usual slightly damp Dartmoor!

Saltash May Fair 2016

The Saltash May Fair moving back to Saltash Town Centre was a major talking point leading up to the May Fair this year. The very small (4 members!) committee had to deal with huge amounts of negativity and lots of small town politics. After the May Fair on Saturday, all of that has gone, as

The Tamar Wedding Fair

Although a new event for us, it was the second time The Tamar Wedding Fair has been ran, the first by Saltash Chamber of Commerce, but they passed the reins over to me this year! Saltash Social Club is a wonderful venue to work in, with a high wooden ceiling and views over the River

Dawlish Manor House Wedding Fair 2016

Saturday saw us setting up a wedding fair at a new venue, Dawlish Manor House, which has recently been granted a licence to perform weddings. We were joined by Pop Goes The Weasel, Elite Mobile Event Bars and Winsor Flower Studio who were decorating the Mayors Parlour, setting up a bar and providing a florist display. Once the
