Volunteers Needed for Easter Carnival

MAIN LOGOsidebarCan YOU help?

All the hard work for the Easter carnival has been covered by a dedicated band of members. However, there is a host of small duties that need to be covered at each event.

Your help is required to ensure the success of the carnival. None of the tasks are overly onerous and you will still be able to compete in the event itself.

The tasks in bold still need helpers. Please notify Vanessa Smith where you can help via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
