Bungo In The Back Lanes is a big event for a small community group to put on. Volunteering before, during and after the event doesn’t need to be a chore. So if you’ve ever thought of getting involved, make this the year you do.
Here’s a starter list of tasks we need help with, if one catches your eye, get in touch via the blog or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Gazebo crew – 20 people needed to work in crews putting up gazebos (and taking them down again). Gazebos are put up on the morning of the event and dismantled straight after. Turn up in Marywood Square/Queen Square Lane at 9am on the day. Bacon rolls often appear miraculously if that helps (other rolls are available!)
Poster crews – 10-20 people needed to put up posters around the area (and, you guessed it, take them down again once the day is over).
Stewards – 8 people needed to act as Stewards on the day, donning a hi-vis vest and helping folk find their way around.
Stall holders – Not planning a stall of your own? Why not spend half an hour to help man one of the Society’s stalls or lend a hand in the tea garden? The profits from these help to fund staging the event
Eagle-eyes – We want to make sure the lanes look as clean and tidy as possible on the big day. Could you volunteer to wander your own lane in the week leading up to the event and let us know if there are any problems to deal with – fly-tipping, graffitti, wobbly walls? Join in with the Brighter Bungo team.
We’ll be adding more tasks as we go, so if none of these catch your fancy, keep checking!
