Winterfest takes place on Saturday 12th December 2015.

This world famous event runs for 5 hours, from midday to 5.00pm, and provides a wonderful pre-Christmas experience for many hundreds of visitors.

But to make everything run smoothly, a great deal of input is required and the Beer Festivals Trust is seeking volunteers, please.

In particular the organisers are looking for the following assistance:

Thurs 10 Dec afternoon Laying the floor in the marquees 4 Volunteers
Fri 11 Dec afternoon Decorating the Marquees 10 volunteers
Sat 12 Dec — scheduled slots Serving Beer, wine & spirits 40 volunteers
Sun 13 Dec 8.00am to 1.00pm Taking down & clearing up10 Volunteers

The above outline may be subject to change as the detailed planning progresses, but the organisers are very keen to hear from volunteers as soon as possible, so the various tasks can be fully staffed.

Previous experience is not necessary — the tasks are mostly common sense, but experienced folk will be on hand to provide help and guidance.

For further information and to offer your services, please contact Peter Harris, mobile:
