[quote=".flux"]HF just informed me that we have to pay for the stall, which I am happy to pay for personally as it's a mere £20 (VF makes no money at all, in fact we probably owe money!) but we don't actually have any merchandise as such, or even publicity materials.
Yeah, sorry about that. We did want to give VF and animal rescues free stalls, but the cost of hiring the village green has gone up and we have to pay for every stall that's there.
I think it's worth it, though, as the green is such a lovely spot with a relaxed atmosphere and vehicle access for unloading. If we'd picked Castlefield in the city centre, we'd have drunken Deansgate snobs sneering at us, a sloped site and no toilets. Wythenshawe Park is too hard to get to and hardly anybody has heard of it, most of the other parks aren't hireable, and doing it in a car park or indoor venue would just spoil the atmosphere.
