Volunteer at this year’s festival

Interested in volunteering opportunities? The Whitstable Oyster Festival Association is seeking volunteers to help make this year’s Festival a roaring success.

The 2013 Whitstable Oyster Festival runs from Saturday 27th July to Friday 2nd August with lots of fun events on each day and the Association’s Committee is keen to hear from local people who would like to lend a hand during Festival week.

The chairman David Roberts said “many of the events are free and are put on especially for children and the more people we have to help the easier it is to manage. There is still a lot to do to turn this year’s ambitious plans into reality and although we have trained stewards to keep people safe there is still a need for volunteers to assist with running the events on the day. Enthusiastic volunteers will be welcomed with open arms regardless of how much actual time they can give”.
