You used to offer bouncy castle hire, do you still do this?
Unfortunately in light of tragedies involving bouncy castles over the last few years and the limited capacity of our small team of volunteers to carry out regular and thorough checks of our bouncy castles, the committee came to the decision in November 2018 to no longer loan out bouncy castles to our members.
