Exhibitors Access

I think we need to be more careful about the exhibitors access. I put the rope back twice as it was lying on the ground. People where walking back and forth through the gap unchallenged.
I know staffing is difficult but could do with a person in that area permanently.

OK, I didn't realise that Pete. Hopefully if we can get the scouts involved in parking duties next year we will be able to put one there once the traders are all in. And Steves car pass idea would be a double check if there were any cars through there which didn't have a pass we would know they shouldn't be there. Also if there are enough of them they will be able to direct visitors or maybe we have our car park people guarding the perimeter!

Perhaps we need something more substantial than single rope?

I'll look into how much that orange netting is they use on construction sites.

The cost for the barrier fencing is £35+VAT. This is for 50m.
I may be able to get some for free though from one of our contractors, just need to let them knnow how much we need.
I'll do a rough measure up tomorrow.
Steve, I brought your cutter last Friday but forgot to give it back to you. As I lost one of the big signs it may be worth me doing some more then I'll have them for next year!
I'll bring it along tomorrow anyway
