CAUSEWAY Coast and Glens Borough Council has launched the latest edition of its event management guide for the community and voluntary sector.
Aimed at helping groups who organize community parties and other events, the new version has been updated to take account of the latest legislation.
It includes practical information and advice on permissions, licensing, food safety, marketing, media relations, risk assessments (including Covid-19) and a host of other issues to ensure the proper organization and management of your event.
As well as 12 new sections containing the most up-to-date advice, it also contains additional downloadable templates, Council contact details and guidance on various departments and sources of help.
Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Councilor Richard Holmes said: “Communities across the borough play a vital role every year in organizing events in their areas which are a real asset to our borough. .
“This invaluable guide has proven to be an essential resource for them, and I am very pleased to launch this new edition.
“With the safety of participants, organizers and the public remaining a top priority, the guide to good practice is a useful reference for those planning and organizing festivals and other events for the first time as well as for those with more experience. .”
A workshop on the best use of the guide will take place on Wednesday April 27 at 6:30 p.m. in Cloonavin, Coleraine.
This informal café-style event will bring together experts from traffic management and road safety, licensing, environmental health, media and promotion, event management and community development to answer your questions, highlight the specific section of the guide and offer tips and advice on best practices.
Community organizations that have used the guide will share their learnings from “presentation readiness” to risk management, financial implications, weather and emergency planning.
You will also have the opportunity to send in questions, queries or prior knowledge before the event to ensure they can be discussed.
Hard copies of the guide will be available at the workshop.
