Community Event Volunteer

Throughout the year we'll be hosting a range of community events with lots of family entertainment and we are always looking for support.

We're looking for energetic, smiley and friendly people who want to help make our events a great success. Our events are usually free to attend and will play host to a variety of family activities and usually include, street food, cookery, art & crafts stalls, children activities, live music and performances from talented young people and community members alike!
