Volunteer Events Organiser Wanted

Volunteer Events Organiser Wanted

Do you have any experience – formal or informal – of organising events? Helmdon Parish Council is considering how to mark the King's Coronation on the weekend of 6 – 8 May 2023 and needs somebody to help co-ordinate the festivities. The parish council can provide the facilities, contacts, support, and funding, but needs a volunteer events organiser who can dedicate probably a couple of hours per week in the run up to the event to organise it and bring it all together on the day. If this sounds like it might be you, please contact Danny Moody at dannymoody@helmdonparishcouncil.gov.uk to find out more. See https://www.edenprojectcommunities.com/.../organise-big...for the sort of thing we're looking at doing.
