Terms and conditions

The Dunster Tourism Forum – Event Entry T&C Document

Initial Policy: 5th March 2020

Data Controller: Andrew Rice

Data Processor: The Dunster Tourism Forum, Lucy Green

Data Protection Officer: David Oxendale


1. Introduction

In order to protect entrants into events and other voluntary activities, the Dunster Tourism Forum has created this simple five-stage guide to ensure a safe participatory environment.

Please note that The Dunster Tourism Forum website and social media pages are not resourced at all times. Please refer to section five below in case of emergency.


2. Contact details

Events and activities are normally created and hosted by local volunteers or a combination of local volunteers and local independent businesses or charities. The lead contact will be published on marketing materials; however you may also contact us via email and we will direct your enquiry to the lead organiser.


3. Insurance and duty of care

Few locally arranged activities and events will be subject to public liability insurance cover unless expressly detailed within marketing materials or listed on the appropriate website. Many events co-hosted in the village will make use of public realm spaces and therefore you may encounter fast traffic, parked cars, natural obstructions, deep water, loud noises or climatic conditions which may be unfamiliar.

We ask everyone to be fully familiar of their surroundings especially if using mobile technology or completing entry forms for competitions.

Whilst Dunster is a low crime area, please look after your belongings and don’t let opportunistic criminals spoil your visit.


4. No purchase necessary

All local events and activities are no purchase necessary unless expressly notified separately in marketing materials. You may be asked for a small entry charge to some events held on private property (such as Antiques Fairs at the Tithe Barn), however these charges are levied to cover costs only. Organisers of certain events may ask for charitable donations during your visit – you are of course free to make your own decision as to whether to donate.


5. Emergencies

Due to patchy mobile phone coverage, in case of emergency, please call into any one of our local businesses who will be pleased to help.

Our local PCSO, Linda Brooks is available on Facebook if you require non-emergency advice.

The Dunster Surgery is located on the edge of the village and can be accessed via West Street beyond the Foresters Inn.
