All sorts of help needed to make Reading’s first Green Fest a big success!
Support volunteers needed for Transition Town Reading in RG1
Reading Green Fest is a one day festival to celebrate what community groups are doing locally to have a positive environmental impact. There will be children’s activities, films, activity and information stalls and a vegan cafe serving lunches and snacks.
Volunteers are needed to help the event to run smoothly and there will be a variety of tasks. It is likely that you will take on more than one role throughout the day:
Stall supporter: Ensuring stall holders know where they are to set up, checking they have everything they need and looking after their stall if they need a comfort break or bringing them refreshments when needed.
Welcomer / Information point: Welcoming in guests, pointing out what’s going on and what time various things are happening.
Film / sound operator: Someone who’s a little bit tech-savvy to ensure the films are running smoothly and the sound levels are OK.
Cafe Volunteers: Roots Community pop-up cafe are running the cafe and would like a few extra hands behind the counter to take orders, make coffees etc.
We will also need help at the start and end of the day, when it’ll be all hands on deck to make sure we are ready to start at 11am and at the end to make sure we leave the hall and square spic and span!
We expect volunteers may take on more than one of these roles depending where the demand is at any given time, however if you have a preference, please let us know and we will try to accommodate that. Some roles will be more physically demanding and others can be done sitting down.
