Parade logoVolunteering at the Handmade Parade

Would you (or do you know someone who would) like to get more involved in the parade this year? We still have capacity for volunteers to come and join in the fun, make friends, cut stuff up, paint stuff, build stuff, collect stuff (there is lots of 'stuff' to do!) We can find a nice job for everyone!

If interested, please email our Volunteer Coordinators Lisa and Helen.

In case you missed it the theme for this  year is 'Once upon a time’ and will tell a story set in the ancient European forests. It will incorporate elements of European folklore, myth, ritual and design. This year’s parade will be a tale of adventure, set in the deep dark forests of ancient Europe, and the stories of the strange and marvellous creatures who live there. Be careful not to stray from the path …

And of course we’re always in need of anyone who can wield a sewing machine!  All sewers and costume-makers always appreciated.
