Help out on the Day

We need traffic marshals, a balloon blowing and distribution crew, Christmas Party site crew etc.

This could be a way to be involved in the Parade and contribute to the community. This could be a chance to do some fund raising for a charity or an appropriate organisation. Please email us if you would like to help.
