Set up the room

(11.00-11.15)

  • Find the four Local Welcome boxes, move them into the meal space and open them ready to set up.

  • Place three tables in the middle of the room for cooking and put seven seats around each of them, three pairs and one single. (Hint: you might need multiple tables depending on table size).

  • Place a fourth table at the side of the room with the two hobs. Check the electric hobs have power and test:

  • Plug in. The hob will beep and a ‘lock’ indicator will flash

  • Place the frying pan onto the ‘ring’ marker in the middle

  • Hold the ‘lock’ button down for a few seconds until it beeps again

  • You should now hear a fan going and you will be able to adjust the temperature with the ‘+’ and ‘-’ buttons

  • Place a fifth table for safety and eating equipment. Lay out the first aid kit, along with all the cutlery, paper towels, plastic coloured plates and bowls, etc.

  • Place signs on the venue doors to show people where to go when they arrive.

  • Set up the speakers and get some music going!
