Volunteer appeal by Buxton wells dressers

It may be autumn, but the Buxton Well Dressing Festival Committee is already looking towards July 2012 and the organisation of Buxton’s favourite local festival.

The current committee are looking for new volunteers to help with various events.

There is lots of goodwill towards the Well Dressing Festival in the town – this was shown with the fantastic response to the appeal for marshalls for the Carnival earlier this year.

Some of the potential areas volunteers could help with include: organise the Festival Pet Show, help to dress the Carnival Float, organise an Arts Competition, assist with the organisation of the Carnival Parade, organise a community concert, help with the competitions such as Best Decorated Shop or sell advertising for their Festival Programme.

To find out more, an open evening (including refreshments) will take place on October 20 at 7.30pm at the Buckingham Hotel to discuss details of how you can get involved.
