idverde’s Mendip contract was proud to sponsor Collett Festival’s Children’s Festival, which took place in Shepton Mallet’s Collett Park on 9th – 10th June.
Collett Festival takes place each year in the park, and aims to celebrate Shepton Mallet and the much-loved Collett Park with fantastic music, food and entertainment.
idverde contributed £1,500 in sponsorship to this year’s event, which helped provide a range of free entertainment for children, including bouncy castles, laser quest, circus skills workshops, a disco, mini-zoo and bubbleologist. The local idverde team also continued their long-standing practical support on the day, which included organising infrastructure and litter clearance before, during, and after the event.
The Festival was a huge success, with over 4,000 people in attendance.
idverde Contract Manager Wayne Frapple has been involved with the event for over 15 years and says: “It’s always an absolute pleasure to be involved with Collett Festival and to work with Shepton Mallet Town Council to help put on such a great weekend. For me, the children’s event is one of the highlights of the weekend, seeing families and their children being completely overwhelmed by all of the free activities on offer. I received many compliments and praise from the public about the event, thanking idverde for our generous support, and we’re already looking forward to next year!”
