    Sheds often take space at Farmers markets, but what other novel means of fund raising have Sheds undertaken as annual one-offs, or perhaps more regular events.

    Our Shed takes a stand at the local annual Parish Carnival in June, but in 2019, we are also going to be going to a community event which looks to be raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. In addition, by working with the local Tesco Community Champion, we have been offered space within the store entrance for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and just before Christmas.

    I’m going to approach the church that is providing our shed venue, and asking if we can hire the church hall a couple of times a year, so we can sell items that have been made, raising funds that way. I’m also looking into taking a market stall once a month. Our local authority, Sefton, operate a number of market venues around the Borough. Once the insurance is in place, the cost of a stall isn’t astronomical, this may be a way to go.

    Good luck with the market stall. What insurance do you need beyond public liability insurance?
