I have the float (my money) and the $25 made for TNN.
From the noise POV, I think the DIY is better off being somewhere seperate as if all the machines were going it could have hampered conversation
We weren't very noisy IMO - most of the time the machines weren't even running (Claire & Carla snapping, Hannah & I otherwise occupied by Arlo/Will/chatting wth visitors etc. I am thinking that it would be good to be "less removed" next year - maybe a corner of a large hall partitioned off, or more visible from the main area.

Yeah, but you're one of us - we're not going to step you through it, are we?
When people came in the door they were greeted and we directed them to the area(s) of interest. Not need to do that with you eh

Yes, I did - to a couple of TNNers and to various organisations as well.

Ahh! Great job Gabes!

I agree, but
I think it's just the few of us whom actually take the time to read things
It's easier to ask and listen than read
Can't be bothered quoting for these things, here's my response;
Baby Fair - I have been pondering this over the last week in relation to a Baby Basics/on a budget sort of fair (baby wearing, preloved & new nappies & gear, empowering with workshops - baby wearing, nappies, food, homemade toy ideas, gardening, etc). But I'm not sure how to make it work and it's going to take a heap of commitment to organise it. The other issue is that we'll possibly be clashing in timing with the Parents Centre Baby Fair this coming Saturday - not sure if that's a regular thing or not
I have also been thinking about venues. I have no idea what the ins & outs of our new Church, Spreydon Baptist, are with hiring as a venue, but I can investigate (we're pretty new there so we know nadda about how it works and they may not even make it available to non-church activities). I was thinking that we could buddy up with the New Harvest Trust (I believe Spreydon Baptist has affiliations with NHT), and get some budget/educational focussed type Expo/Fair thing happening? And of course with a cafe on site that makes that side of things VERY easy
Shall I make some enquiries?
Forgotten what else I was going to say
Tea is ready
Probably back later
