Can you help organize the Christmas Fair?
Would you be interested in joining the Christmas Fair Committee – have you held a long term wish to be the person in charge of that Wheel of Fortune, perhaps you have new ideas for stalls or have ideas on how to improve on the existing stalls?  The Christmas Fair organising committee would love your input and would really welcome some new members.   We will be looking for further volunteers to help out on the big day itself but initially we would love some fresh ideas and some helping hands with all the planning that the event requires.  Our next Christmas Fair meeting takes place next Wednesday evening so if you are interested don’t delay, please do get in touch.
