GGLC Fete - Information for Vendors

Set Up Instructions for Stall holders

Last updated: 11 Oct 2021

Please refer to Site Plan on this website. Check for updates periodically during the week prior to the fete.

The Fete starts at 11AM

Vendors may set up from 8AM

Apart from on the oval, cars cannot move on site between 9AM and 3PM.

There will be a Worship Service in the courtyard between 9:30AM and 10:15AM. 

 

Car boot sales

Car boot stall holders will be located on the Oval between the playground and the gate. 

Between 8AM and 11AM, enter the oval off Richardson Drive and turn immediately right towards the playground.  You may need to identify yourself as a car boot seller and ask the gate attendant to take down some bunting to give you access.

You may bring tables, gazebos etc to display your goods. Please take home all your gear, leaving the space clean. (Fete rubbish bins are not to be used to dispose of unsold goods.)   

Note that semi-professional second hand goods scouts often arrive early and do not observe official start times. We will do our best to ask patrons to wait until 11am.   

 

Outside Market Stall Holders in School/Church Car Park

The school carpark entrance on Richardson Drive will be open for vehicles between 8AM and 9AM. 

(One way traffic: enter off Richardson, exit onto Sunnybrook Drive.) 

Drop off goods at your site, then park your car offsite (see options below). 

There will be no traffic allowed through the car park between 9AM and 3PM. 

If you arrive after 9AM, equipment and goods will need to be dropped at the gate and carried to the stall site. 

Gazebos: Reminder, the surface is asphalt and therefore pegs cannot be used to hold gazebos down. Sandbags or water containers are a suitable alternative.  

 

Inside Stall Holders: 

The school carpark entrance on Richardson Drive will be open for vehicles from 8AM to 9AM. 

(One way traffic: enter off Richardson, exit onto Sunnybrook Drive.) 

Drop off equipment and goods close to a door (as instructed), then park your car offsite (see options below). 

There will be no traffic allowed through the car park between 9AM and 3PM.  

If you arrive after 9AM, equipment and goods will need to be dropped at the gate and carried to the stall site. 
 

Courtyard Market Stall Holders

The school carpark entrance on Richardson Drive will be open for vehicles from 8AM to 9AM. 

(One way traffic: enter off Richardson, exit onto Sunnybrook Drive.) 

Drop off equipment and goods at the eastern end of the courtyard just inside the Richardson Drive gateway. Then park your car offsite (see options below). 

There will be no traffic allowed through the car park between 9AM and 3PM.  

If you arrive after 9AM, equipment and goods will need to be dropped at the gate and carried to the stall site. We have a trolley that may be of some use. 

For Gazebos: Reminder, the surface is paved and therefore pegs cannot be used to hold gazebos down. Sandbags or water containers are a suitable alternative.  

There will be a Worship Service in the courtyard AT THE EASTERN (ENTRANCE) END, between 930AM and 1015AM. So please set up before 9:30AM or after 10:15AM.   

 

Car parking options: 

  • Richardson Drive and side streets
  • Sunnybrook Drive and side streets

COVID Safety:

Please cancel your attendance if you are feeling unwell or are under SA HEALTH orders for quarantine. 

We request that you have hand sanitiser at your stall. 

Please help us to ensure there is no crowding around your stall by asking people to spread out. 

If customers need to use pens at your stall, please use COVID-safe practices such as using  pots-labelled “used pens” and “clean pens”, and sanitise all used pens with a soapy wet wipe (or COVID-safe alternative method) before re-use.     

There will be 4 COVID Marshalls on duty who will encourage vendors and attendees to comply with COVID-Safe general obligations but the site COVID Marshal is not legally responsible for individual vendor compliance. If your operations require a separate COVID Safe plan, please ensure you have everything in place to maintain compliance.

Visitors will be required to do a QR code check in (or manual sign-in) at the entrance gate for a site-wide record of attendance. Individual stallholders are not required to have separate check-ins. However, if you have COVID-safe requirements which are specific to the nature of your business, you should continue to exercise them according to your own COVID Safe Plan.

Please review the official COVID Safe Plan for the Golden Grove Lutheran Community Fete. A printed copy of this plan is available for inspection in the Church Office.

 

Waste Management

Please help us minimise the negative impact on our planet by using environmentally responsible packaging and carry bags. Use the green bins for food/compostable packaging, and 10c deposit bins for cans and bottles. Thank you.   

 

Food Options

Please make full use of the facilities on site. We have a Café and food stalls with options including Chicken Yiros, Pork Buns, Sausages, Mexican Rice, Sausage rolls, Spinach and feta rolls, Nachos, Hotdogs, Popcorn etc. Inside beyond the cafe, food options include Devonshire tea, home baked/grown/made produce, olive oil, jams and preserves. 

 

We wish you a successful day, with whatever you promote, sell or engage in.

About the Golden Grove Lutheran Community Fete

The Golden Grove Lutheran Community Fete is run by the Golden Grove Lutheran Church with extensive involvement from the Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School. The event is strongly family-oriented; we have many attractions that suit children, and we try to put together an event which offers something for parents and grandparents as well. Stallholders who have something to offer which does not conflict with the values of the Church and School are most welcome to apply.

2021 is the third successive year that the event will be held. In 2020, even with the challenges of COVID-19, up to 1700 people participated in the event. We expect that in October 2021 we will still be subject to COVID-19 restrictions, including a cap of 1000 people on site at any given time, QR-code check-in and social distancing measures. We will manage these at the site level, but individual vendors will still be required to follow their own COVID-Safe plans.

Facilities

The event is held on the shared campus of the Golden Grove Lutheran Church and Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School on the corner of Sunnybrook Drive and Richardson Drive, Wynn Vale. Facilities include indoor spaces of approximately 500m2 and 120m2, an enclosed courtyard of 550m2, an outdoor area with bitumen base of about 3000m2, and the school oval. Cafe Connect is also on site.

Types of Stalls and Activities

In 2021 we are able to accommodate 40-60 market stalls.

In past years, stalls have included goods for sale such as toys, games (e.g board games and electronic games), baby goods, arts and crafts, confectionery, garden ornaments, garden items, makeup, jewellery, cards, timber crafts, crochet and knitwear, and second hand items; promotions such as recycling, fitness, sports clubs; and activities such as pony rides, face painting and temporary tattoos.

GGLC and Cafe Connect provide ready-to-eat foods, drinks and cakes, and together with sponsors provide inflatables, rock climbing wall, petting zoo, games and other activities. There is also a raffle with a significant list of prizes. Vendors who provide goods or services that do not compete with the above are preferred.

Vendors may also wish to be sponsors, as described on the Information for Sponsors page. In particular we encourage vendors (who have suitable wares) to offer prizes for the fete raffle, which works to the mutual benefit of both the vendor's stall and the raffle by creating a "multiplying effect".

Promotion

GGLC promotes the fete through a range of mechanisms: road signage throughout the nearby community, social media, website, newsletters to the school community, leaflets to nearby schools and churches, displays in shopping centres, radio and newspaper advertising, letter box drops. Wherever practical to do so, fete partners are promoted in the advertising material, in the following preferential order:

  1. Major Sponsors
  2. Other sponsors, approximately in order of sponsorship value
  3. Vendors

All vendors will appear on the fete website and in the fete directory. Vendors who apply early will have the benefit of longer exposure times through the fete promotional media.

We also encourage all vendors to share the event with their own membership, customers, email lists and so on. Media to share is available on the partner media page.

How to Apply

The application process is as follows:

  • Apply using the printed Vendor Application or online form as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment (cutoff date: October 1).
  • Provide logo artwork and website or social media link (email to office@gglc.org.au in any of JPG, PNG, PDF, SVG or EPS formats) for promotional purposes.
  • Pay the vendor fee, which is $25 for private stallholders or $50 for registered businesses by October 1. This can be paid in person at Cafe Connect or by secure online payment on the Fete Donation page.
  • Provide a Certificate of Currency for your Public Liability Insurance if applicable (consult with the GGLC Office if not sure)
  • Advise of any special site needs. Some items may be available for hire, including a limited number of trestle tables ($20) and gazebos ($20). Power and water are generally not available although limited accommodations may be possible.
  • In the week before the event, a site plan and detailed instructions on the logistics for the day of the event will be available on this website.
  • Typically, outside set-up is to be done before 9:30am, inside set-up is between 10:15 and 11am, and sites are to be cleared by 6:00pm. There may be variations to this depending on stall location within the site.

Stalls shall be displayed in a professional manner.

Set up and dismantling of stalls shall adhere to times advised.

All rubbish, waste and packaging must be taken away by the stallholder. The stall site must be left in the condition it was found.

We strongly prefer environmentally friendly packaging and labelling for all items for sale/give-away.

All fees must be paid no later than October 1.

Stallholders or stallholder representatives must man stalls at all times.

Tent pegs are not to be used due to the ground conditions - sand bags or similar (e.g. water bottles) MUST be used to secure pop up canopy marquees.

Vendors must provide all of their own equipment including gazebos, tables, chairs etc. Limited numbers of tables and gazebos may be available for hire as described in the application form.

Electricity and water are generally not available. (There may be a small number of exceptions made to this rule for substantial attractions, but not, for example, for EFTPOS devices).

Public Liability Insurance

Vendors who are carrying out commercial activities should have their own public liability insurance for an indemnity of not less than $20 million. If uninsured, or insured for a lesser value, acceptance is at our discretion subject to consultation with the GGLC Office Coordinator.

Weather Policy

In past years, October has provided excellent weather with sunny skies, no more than a light breeze and modest UV ratings. Nevertheless, there is still a risk that poor weather may affect the event. Free attractions, such as inflatables, may not be able to operate under windy or wet conditions. The event will be modified to the extent possible to accommodate stallholders despite bad weather. However, stallholders are expected to make their own preparations for these circumstances and will not be refunded if the event proceeds. Stallholders will be entitled to a refund if organisers choose to cancel the event due to a forecast of extreme weather.

COVID-19 Policy

Stallholders will be entitled to a refund if the event is unable to proceed due to increased COVID restrictions.

Electrical Goods

Any second-hand electrical items for sale must be either tested and tagged by a qualified electrician or marked “This electrical item is second-hand. DO NOT USE OR CONNECT TO SUPPLY. THIS SECOND-HAND ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT MAY BE FAULTY AND SHOULD BE INSPECTED AND TESTED BY A COMPETENT PERSON IN ACCORDANCE WITH AS/NZS 3760” 

You may use this PDF to print tags for electrical goods if you wish.
