Sam Wood - Chair , Feast and Fayre


As ever we are seeking volunteers to help with setting up on Friday evening and Saturday morning and people to stay back after event to help pack away.  It cannot be stressed enough just how much muscle we do need in this vital role.

There are a number of other ways to get involved too. The organising committee is a group of volunteers who steer and plan the event. This is split into a number of roles:

Chair: Responsible for the overall planning and co ordination of the event.

Treasurer: Responsible for all the financial aspects of the event such as ; Paying suppliers, reimbursing costs, managing floats, cashing up and banking.

Volunteer coordinator:  Responsible for obtaining volunteers to help in the event build up and breakdown along , 5 mile run marshalling, stall and games manning, catering stall manning , litter picking and a multitude of other things that are necessary for a successful event.

Stalls coordinator: Responsible for selling space to the stall holders and managing them throughout the day.

Programme producer: Responsible for the editorial and advertising content, the programme design and preparation, Printing and distribution.

Other roles during the event  such as the technical side setting up speakers, maypoles, and generally ensuring the smooth running of the day are unnamed but vital to the success of the event.

Volunteers on the day can give as little or as much of their time as they want. From just an hour helping a stall or event to run to all day if they wish. One thing is for sure: The event will not be a success without them.

This is an event enjoyed by hundreds of our local residents and is organised by local residents, the proceeds of which go towards the ongoing maintenance of our village field and its fabulous facilities.

Everyone who would like to help in any capacity will be made to feel very welcome . If you would like to volunteer please contact Mrs Sam Wood on 01977 706479.
