Ben & Jerry’s Summer Sundae


Ben & Jerry’s Summer Sundae was held in Heaton Park, Manchester for the first time this year and built on the successes of the London event, on Clapham Common, which has now ran for the past seven years.


MRL Safety Limited were approached by Tim Spears of sevens7 and asked to provide a full safety management service.

We began in Heaton Park by attending meetings including the Safety Advisory Group meeting held on site on a chilly March day. MRL then drafted documentation (which included the Event Management Plan, Fire Risk Assessment and Event Risk Assessment) and co-ordinated the necessary event medical provision.

MRL’s own resilience was demonstrated as one of the MRL team who was based on site during the build unfortunately he had to leave suddenly and another member of staff took over in the Safety Manager role at short notice, being able to access to all the relevant notes and documentation that had previously been completed. At the end of a long weekend Tim Spears said “I want to say that, again with MRL’s help we have achieved a very successful and well received event, and we did it in duplicate. Its always gives me a firm sense of security having them on board. Thanks to the team.”

After a bit of a wet week for the build the sun shone on the event and everyone who attended had a great time eating free B & J ice cream, riding on the Victorian fun fair rides and listening to a fantastic stage line up. It really was a great double Summer Sundae!
