VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED
As we are a community organisation, we rely on your help to run these events. We fully appreciate all our volunteers and the more people who come on board, the less we all have to do. This year we are looking for more competition clerks to come on board – your job would be to help the judge with the smooth running of the competition. Or, you may want to stay out of the limelight – that’s OK too. You can help with venue set up and tidy up after, cleaning trophies or with our catering team.
