Lesley to boost festival volunteer team
A NEW volunteer co-ordinator is encouraging people to sign up to help at the 2010 Royston Arts Festival.
Lesley Glover has been appointed to the role by the festival committee, and will oversee the recruitment of people to man this year’s festival, which runs from September 23-26.
She said: “I hope to encourage people to join us in creating an exciting and successful event.
“The festival committee is small and we really appreciate help in staffing events, making sure equipment is in the right place at the right time, ensuring the safety of the public, and a range of other things.”
A Royston resident since 1989, Lesley began her own volunteering with a toddler group, and progressed to Tannery Drift PTA and The Friends of Meridian School committee.
