If you are planning a public gathering, you will have to consider public safety. Public gatherings include:

  • fun runs
  • fetes
  • country or craft shows
  • school plays
  • jumble sales
  • charity or sports events
  • any other public event.

Before you hold a public event, you must complete a risk assessment and send us a written notice. Please print out the forms below and send them to us at our contact address. This information will enable our officers to help you plan a safe event.

Attached below is our 'Guide to organising safe events' which you can print out. It includes information on:

  • organisers' responsibilities
  • risk assessments
  • stewarding
  • public liability insurance
  • site preparation
  • event promotion
  • recommended reading
  • contact details of organisations that can provide assistance.

Alternatively, contact us using the details below and we will send you copies of the guide and forms.
