Member of Parliament for Bishan-Toa Payoh Mr Saktiandi Supaat, who attended Monday’s event, agreed that VWOs could do more to raise funds with the economic downturn.
“Creative methods of fundraising could be one way,” he said, adding that VWOs should continue to raise awareness of their programmes among members of the public so that they continue to give.

With many years of experience with bouncy castle under our belt, we understood and have always briefed our guests and clients the importance of safety and the correct way of using the bouncy castle to prevent any unwanted injury for the user!
And so if you’re thinking to set up your own bouncy castle, here are 5 most important bouncy castle safety tips we would like to share with you so that you and your guest are able to spend more time having fun together!
1. Brief Your Guest About Safe Zones!
Every bouncy castles are built differently due to the different manufacturers. Different materials, different quality and different blower! Because of this, some can easily tip over or come untethered which is not ideal! Make sure kids know to stay in the middle and avoid the walls or corners. Some bouncy might be more prone to tipping over as the surface area is very small. Thus, we always recommend pitting it against the ground, make sure the house is securely fastened by ropes, pegs, or sand bags, to ensure that it will not flip over while the kids are bouncing inside!
2. Keep an eye on the Bouncy Castle
Always have an adult overseeing kids playing in bouncy houses! We always recommend having some one to act as the “ticket master” to brief the kids to ensure they know the basic safety rules before they enter the bouncy castle! We also recommend him to make sure the kids hands are sanitised before entering!
3. Rough Play Is a No-No
Yes, the surface is soft and flexible, but injuries can still happen. This is because kids can get carried away while at play, pushing, somersaulting, or jumping around too much. Thus fighting, pushing and fooling around with each other is no-no inside the bouncy castle!
When you spot kids engaging in rough play, stop them immediately!
4. Adhere to Weather Warnings
Make sure there are no violent wind warnings on the day. If there are, make sure to find a spot where it’s fully sheltered and set up the bouncy castle there! Water can make the bouncy very slippery and dangerous!
5. Make Sure the Bouncy Castle Is Age-Appropriate
When throwing a party for your kid, chances are that kids of all ages will be present. Make sure bigger kids don’t go in the bouncy house at the same time as the little ones! “Kids at heart” don’t count 😉
Bouncy castles are no place for teens and adults when kids are present! They can pose as a greater danger for the kids the not!
So hopefully with these 5 tips, you’ll be able to have a bouncy good time at your next party! Less Injury, More Fun!
5 main points to make your event and carnival from Good to GREAT!
1. Good event planner and carnival coordinator
Having a good carnival coordinator and events planner on-site for your carnival is important as the events coordinator will ensure that everything run smoothly from pre carnival planning to carnival/event set up to part timers to execution.
A good carnival coordinator and events planner has to be very quick on their feet to solved and innovate should a problem arise.
They must also have very high situation awareness to know their surrounding i.e when the guest of honour is late for the event and there’s a buzz on the walkie and what they should do and when the minster finally arrive, what will he/she do.
A good carnival coordinator and events planner should also understand that all not everything is under their control and things might go wrong. They should always be prepared to adapt to under different scenario and work under strong pressure from many different stress factor as a event is run by a team of people which manages their emotions and stress level differently.
Thus, whether a event make or break would strongly depends on good or great your carnival coordinator or event planner manages him or herself on the day of event.
2. Well thought-of pre-planning
A well thought of pre-planning is second most important factor as pre-planning your event allows you to mentally run through the event amongst the whole team and potentially spot mistakes/blind spot that you or your team might not have seen while planning.
Pre-planning for a carnival/events can also help set the direction for everyone in the team, to ensure that everyone in the team understands the scale, the event plans and every individual roles. This will not only ensure maximum productivity and will ensure that all area of the events is covered and not missed out.
It is also good for everyone to understand the chain-of-command. This is very important as your volunteer or team member should know who to contact/inform first should a problem (big or small) arises. From the command room, where the carnival coordinator or event planner, will be able to make a strategic move or if there’s a client, he or she would be able to inform the client and make a desiccation from there, which will be disseminate from there.
3. A great Emcee
Many carnival or event planner do not understand the importance of having a great emcee. A successful event not only consist of a great, engaging and well thought of execution, but also the mood of the event.
Emcee is important as the emcee will set the mood of the carnival or event. If you emcee is unable to create the hype to engage the audience, your guest will quickly fade away into the crowd. This is what you want to avoid as many things would go through their head while that happen. Many will be thinking to quickly get out of the event as to not “waste their time”, some might start creating problems that might pose an issue to safety and ultimately you’ll not be able to achieve your event goals.
The role of the emcee is mainly to interact and engage the audience. Depending on your crowd and event, some crowd might find a emcee who jokes more engaging while some might find emcee with a great voice with good content and good stage presence more appealing.
The basis for all great emcee should also be able to articulate themselves well, like when getting volunteers up on stage, explaining games rules, giving out instructions and also make announcement.
Emcee should also be quick witted to ensure they have control over the crowd should there be “hackler” who tries to outsmart or create a chaos during the event.
4. Good sound system and awesome deejay(DJ) that is able to create hype!
That being said from point number 3, having a good sound system is super important as the sound system is the “voice’ of the event or carnival.
Without a suitable speaker that is able to project the voice or the emcee or the music played, guest get frustrated easily trying to strain their ears just to listen to announcement or engagement from emcee. Guest might also missed out information easily.
Music is also the soul to all event and carnival. Thus having a DJ that understands the event and carnival type is important as that would allow the DJ to select the suitable music for the event or carnival.
A good DJ should also have a good understand of playing a suitable fanfare, sound effect and jingles for when VIPs grace the event or when a stage game is being played on stage. These little things are often missed out due to inexperience, lack of situation awareness or lack of cue due to poor or inexperience carnival coordinator or event planner.
5. Expert knowledge in power and electricity management
As complicated as this might sound, it is very critical for all events. It is one of the most basic for all events or carnivals. It is the backbone for all events.
Having insufficient or overloading power would cause a short circuit, black out or might even catch a fire or explosion due to power over loading.
This is the last thing you want happening to any events. Having expert knowledge on power and electricity allows you to understand how much power a particular machine draws and if it is safe to have additional power draw from the same circuit. This will allow you to prevent any potential hazard that you might face.
Understand power and electricity is also crucial for your event is also important as when you speak to the event space electrician, you’ll be able to communicate effectively regarding the amount of power he/she should supply for your event and thus, to apply for the correct permit for your event use.
Another important point is when generator come into play. Getting the right generator that supplies the right power output will determine if your events have lights, fan, power for your vendor, or booths.
You’ll also need to know the right amount of powerpoint required and if you should also have excess powerpoint for safety.
The last thing you want for any event is when everything is in place, but it’s not able to power up. With the few main pointers from above, you have already won half the battle.
Carnival planning and event planning should be easy, fun and stress-free. Always remember, your problem is someone else’s solution.
