King Down Slide

The Town Crier is ready to shout at the gate. A fete King and Queen with attendants await,

But some volunteers and stewards we're short of

No volunteers. No stewards. No fete!

It may sound extreme to some but those well thought of folk ensure the safety of the fete procession along with the safe layout etc of stalls and attractions.

Do any grandparents or family friends fancy some fun wearing a hi-viz waistcoat and walking beside the procession as a steward? Once on the playing field, just being on hand for guidance and safety.

If you think you could give maybe half a day- 9-1 or 1-5, or any help at all,
email Bob at boblelliott@outlook.com for more details or call Jo on 07545 255680.

Sorry, no Roman Soldiers this year though.
