Are you able to spare an hour or two on Sunday, May 17, to help local families have a fun time?

The play and sport team at North Herts Children’s Services are holding a summer family fun run at Royston Leisure Centre on that day and need some volunteers who are willing to marshal the course for a maximum of two hours.

This will be a really enjoyable family event involving a fun run along a 3km guided route – you can jog, walk or toddle round, and buggies are welcome.

Children will receive a medal for completing the route and will then enter the fun zone where there will be an array of exciting activities.

Arts and crafts, face painting, inflatables, a limbo competition and even a beach where you can build sandcastles are all part of the programme.

Refreshments will be available and you can also bring a picnic to enjoy and really make a day of it – if you have children, then they can join in the fun for free if you get involved in the marshalling team.

So why not be one of the friendly smiling faces around the route – by volunteering for an hour or two you will really help the day to be a great success as well as meeting new people and having fun at this wonderful community event.
