A space for a display behind your stall is acceptable (display to be provided by you).
Stall Planning: The Cheeki Monkeys Event Organiser reserves the right to decide the arrangement and allocation of stalls on market days.
Stallholder Refunds: The Event Organiser’s job is to provide an event for traders to sell and customers to visit. The Event Organiser cannot be held responsible for the lack of sales or the number of customers. Therefore, in the instance that the stallholder is not happy with the amount of customers that attend an event, stall fees are non-refundable.
Stallholder Non-attendance: If a stallholder is not able to attend a market they have pre-booked for, the stallholder fee is non-refundable. We may consider transfer to another market date, pending availability and circumstance.
Market Cancellation & Refunds: Should a Cheeki Monkeys market be cancelled, stallholders will receive a 100% refund of stall fee paid.

Business Stallholders Insurance Required: All business stallholders MUST forward a copy of their certificate of Public Liability Insurance to Cheeki Monkeys prior to the market day.

Batteries: All toys and baby items that require batteries must be offered for sale in full working order with batteries installed.
Stallholders Trading: To be fair to the market customers, stallholders are not allowed to shop from any other stallholders before the official market opening time. After opening time, stallholders are able to shop like all other customers. Due to health and safety regulations no stallholder is permitted to pack up before the market officially closes.
Setting-up: Our doors open to stallholders 1 - 1.5 hours before the doors open to the shoppers. This should allow plenty of time to set up your stall in a presentable manner. We suggest that you allow at least 1 hour for the preparation of your stall, so that you are fully geared up for the doors opening. Late arrivals will NOT be admitted within 30 minutes of the market opening time as this does not allow enough time to set up the stall in a safe and well-turned-out manner.
Packing-up: Stallholders must adhere to market opening hours and should pack up only when the organisers declare the venue closed and due to health and safety regulations must not leave the event early. Once the market has closed, stallholders and their belongings must vacate the building within 45 minutes.
Removal of Waste and Unsold Goods: Stallholders must remove all waste, litter and unsold items from the venue when leaving the event. Cheeki Monkeys reserve the right to dispose of any items left behind following an event. Please leave your stall area the way you found it.
Respecting the Venue: Stallholders will be financially accountable for any damages they cause to the market venue. It is NOT allowed to hang, stick, tape, glue, nail, screw or in any other way affix items to any wall, door, floor, curtain or any other part of the building during the event. Do NOT drag large items across the floors of the venue, if you cannot pick up an item by yourself, request help from one of the Cheeki Monkeys support staff.
Council Market Licensing Fees: In some areas of the UK, certain authorities may require that an Event Organiser needs to pay a licence fee to the council to the hold a market in their borough. Sometimes, the local authority will ask for a set fee per market, plus an extra fee per stall at the market. To help cover the cost of this fee an Event Organiser may request that all stallholders at the market pay an extra fee to the Event Organiser on the day of the market, this fee can range from £1.00 to £4.00 per stall. Please note that this is a very rare occurrence. To check if this fee is applicable for your event, please visit your individual event page on our website. If this fee is relevant to the market you will be attending, the amount of the fee payable will be stated on the event page and will also be quoted in your welcome email from your Event Organiser.

COVID-19 Customer Responsibility/Guidelines:
All bookings are on the basis that the customer will, at all times, observe the safety regulations set by the event organiser and adhere to safety instructions where given by the event organiser.
All customers should take responsibility for their own safety and that of any under 18’s accompanying them.
All customers should respect the environmental responsibilities of the venue and other customers and follow any social distancing measures, single-direction traffic systems and one out-one in policies in place at the venue.
On entering and leaving the venue everyone should wash their hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or use hand sanitiser if hand washing facilities are unavailable. Follow the Catch It, Bin It, Kill It campaign to help prevent the spread of the disease. Always carry tissues and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Germs can live for several hours on tissues. Dispose of your tissue as soon as you can in the bins supplied.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have symptoms of cough, fever, high temperature, sore throat, runny nose, breathlessness or flu like symptoms now or in the past 14 days prior to attending an event.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have been in close contact of a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 now or in the past 14 days (i.e. less than 2 meters for more than 15 minutes altogether in 1 day) prior to attending an event.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have been advised by a doctor to self-isolate at the time of the event.
Prior to the day of the event, stallholders should freshly launder all clothing items, all other items should be wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes.
Stallholders should attend on their own where possible. Do not bring young children who would find social distancing difficult.
If the event is cancelled or postponed as a result of COVID-19, Force Majeure terms will come into effect.
If you can, you should wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet, such as a community facility. This is most relevant for short periods indoors in crowded areas.
Evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you. However, if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms, it may provide some protection for others you come into close contact with. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you and your household must isolate at home; wearing a face covering does not change this.
Face coverings do not replace social distancing. Even if a face covering is used, staff, event organisers and users of the space should continue to wash hands regularly and maintain social distancing. If users of the space choose to wear one, it is important to use face coverings properly and thoroughly wash hands before putting them on and taking them off.
Please note, a face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment. These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.
Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. See a list of individuals this might apply to.
NHS Test and Trace Service
To support the NHS test and trace team respond to any local coronavirus outbreaks, businesses like ours have been asked by the government to collect basic contact details from their customers (name and contact number).
All bookings received contain contact details, they are stored in a GDPR safe environment. In the unlikely event of a local outbreak of the virus, your contact details may be requested by the NHS test and trace team.
Symptoms of Covid-19
If anyone becomes unwell with symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough or a high temperature) at the venue they should go home and be advised to follow the stay at home guidance. If they need clinical advice they should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don’t have internet access). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. They should not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
Other people who may have been in contact with a person who has become unwell should wash their hands thoroughly after the interaction, but they do not need to take any other specific action unless they develop symptoms themselves or are advised to do so by NHS Test and Trace. If they do develop symptoms they should follow the stay at home guidance.
