A Call for Summerfest Helpers

Summerfest 2019 is approaching fast — Saturday 6th July.

To date we have raised over £300,000 for local causes and we couldn't have done this without help from a large group of wonderful volunteers.

So once again we're asking for help.

The main need, as always, is for serving beer, but we also need people to serve cider, lager, Pimms, Gin etc. And of course, to help with Setting Up on Thursday evening & all day on Friday, and for Clearing Up on the Sunday morning.

The Sunday Clear-Up is always a struggle, and your help from 9:00am on that day justifies your free entry to Summerfest, so please consider stepping forward and letting us know in advance if it suits you.

For all offers of help please drop us an email (see below) noting any specific time/location requests.

If you've kindly assisted before but are unable to help this time, please also let us know, so we can avoid chasing you!

Helping as a volunteer to run Summerfest is great fun, so please encourage friends, family and colleagues to sign up for a stint — our webpage explains the details: www.summerfest.org.uk

Summerfest volunteers have a separate entrance (to avoid the queues), free entry, free festival glass and a Volunteer T-Shirt.

We ask for a 2-hour minimum shift but welcome offers of longer shifts and always struggle to find people for the later shifts.

Dianne is coordinating volunteers this year and we are using a dedicated email address: hadbfvolunteers@gmail.com

To comply with GDPR requirements for holding personal data, we can assure you that weonly do so to run the Beer Festivals and, if you wish to be removed from our register, all you have to do is tell us and it will be done.

We look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Dianne Brackley & Pete Harris
