Summerfest Volunteers Sought

Summerfest 40

Haddenham Summerfest is only three weeks away (Saturday 7th July) and the Trust is asking for your support once again to help make the event its usual fantastic success.

The main focus is on finding help with serving the Ales, Craft Beer, Lager, Cider, Pimms and soft drinks. Changes will also be implemented to the Pimms preparation process to reduce the considerable effort on the day.

As last year the organising committee will be asking for only 2-hour shifts, please. Organisers find it relatively easy to satisfy the early shifts, but the later shifts are always a challenge. So, if volunteers can be flexible over timings, that would be very much appreciated.

Having decided on 2-hour shifts, the result is that more volunteers will be required, of course. So if you're inclined to help, please would you also invite friends, relatives, neighbours, acquaintances and work contacts! All volunteers gain free entrance to the event and the satisfaction of having made a significant contribution to a wonderful community event.

As well as on-the-day support, volunteers are also needed to set up beforehand and to help clear up afterwards. The key times for these activities are:

Thurs 5th July 4.00pm — 6.00pm
Fri 6th July 4.00pm — 6.00pm
Sun 8th July 9.00am — 1.00pm

All offers of help gratefully received — please contact Peter Harris, Tel: 01844 213057 Mob: 07801 962040 or Email: prjj.harris@talktalk.net
