Health and Safety points for Trade Stalls / Exhibitors / Campers
The Crash Box Club appreciates you supporting this event, as will this year’s nominated charities. Thank you for attending.
May we point out to you some of the Health and Safety precautions that, for the safety of all, you need to be aware of. This includes not only our own helpers but also contractors, exhibitors and members of the public. Trade stalls are considered to be a work place in legal terms. It is important that you read them.
