Image result for ways you can helpImage result for 2 hours


We understand:

  • people have busy lives – which is why we only ask that each family sign up for 2 hours
  • plans changes – which is why we use SignUp that allows you to cancel out of spots and sign up for another spot if you need to
  • some people are simply not able to volunteer on the day – but that’s OK… you can always sign up for spots on Sunday or help in other ways
  • technology can be confusing – which is why we are happy to sign you up. Simply speak to the office or send us an email. Please include your name, email address, mobile number and times you can volunteer and we will do the rest.

In bad news – we have had to kill the Toilet Roll Throw stall due to lack of volunteers. There are a few stalls looking particularly nervous right now…

In good news, we have reduced the vacant spots down to 209 spots… Thank you to those who heeded the call to arms.  But 209 unfilled spots just over one week out from the Fete makes me feel like this:
