It’s only a little over a month to the Village Bonfire Night (Saturday 2nd November, 6pm on Ward’s Field) and the organisers are in need of volunteers to help with the event.
No previous experience is necessary, but a smile, sense of humour and can-do attitude is required! Volunteers are needed to collect wood, build the bonfire, set up stalls, work on the stalls, manage car parking, be traffic/pedestrian marshalls, clear the site and return borrowed goods, and manage the PA system.
There are also some specific roles that need to be covered: two first aiders, and trailer drivers for wood collection in the morning of the event. If you have helped out in the past you will probably receive an email from the organisers, but do let them know if you can help in case they don’t have your contact details.
In the meantime, get stockpiling wood and start thinking about creating a guy for the Guy Fawkes competition, details of which will be announced soon.
To volunteer or for more information email Jenny Caw at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07788 137168.
