As it is the first of the month - I decided to add this lovely photo of some White Rabbits in the snow!! Enjoy !
Meanwhile, some thoughts on the Vale events through the summer. The organiser offered the use of tents so we only had to bring the bars in - however - there is a charge of about £300 per tent plus VAT which makes the calculations fall apart. Until we know better and have done an event there, I have to estimate that the profit margin will be in the region of £650 - £750 after paying 10% of the takings for site fees. That would wipe any profit out entirely.
It makes it a harder set up - but I cannot see another way other than to take our own tents for the first events. Still mulling this over.
Meanwhile - Morrisons have an offer on Vodka at £15 a litre which is good, and Farm Foods are still doing their buy 2 x 3ltr for £3 which brings coke and diet coke down to 50p a litre.
Need to find if Farm Foods are near Brentwood... hmmm Chelmsford seems the best
4 WATERSON VALE
Best keep that for posterity ..
Meanwhile, also purchased a small wooden barrel planter that will do well to hold snacks like crisps and peanuts in packets on the bar. Also a couple of wagon Wheel so I can build the wine seller's barrow.. All ideas in mind at the moment ...
Starting to get the spereadsheets together for the stock and pricing structures..
All keeping busy .. Meanwhile I saw this - and thought "what a good idea!" Seems the customers do the pedalling ...
White Rabbits !
