Having never attended a CFA event before, it was the perfect way to gain invaluable feedback from stallholders and share ideas with other fair organisers in a relaxed atmosphere. I think for us the most interesting outcome was being able to see stalls “in the flesh” and how different they can be from their applications (Fair Organiser)
The meeting was most helpful and SO well organised. Hopefully we got some nice stalls. It is not easy being so far north. (Fair Organiser)
When we started the RNLI Michaelmas Fair back in 2006 joining the CFA gave us the confidence and know how to start a new charity fair from scratch. The CFA is an invaluable resource both for Fair Organisers and Stallholders. Our fair alone has so far raised close to £300,000 for the RNLI and nationwide the money raised by all the fairs must be huge!! It has been a great pleasure to have been part of it
Fair applications are going pretty ok. More yes’s than last year already and I would put that down to the CFA workshop last year when we worked on applications. That was very worthwhile www.punica.co.uk
I would never be where I am now without your help @FairsAssoc thank you for following #ThankYou
I have just taken out stock insurance with Insignia – great quote and half the price that I was given by other insurance companies
I wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU to you and the committee for organising such a brilliant AGM. It was my first and I was impressed. I know that all these interests from stall holders/ fair organisers and all the other stuff in between is never easy to get right. Sounds like it was rather a dreadful year last year, so onwards and upwards.
Just want to let you know how impressed I was with the AGM. Clear, concise presentations wjth all the info I needed. The ‘speed dating’ exercise at the end was superb. Please, please make it a regular exercise.
