Volunteers required for park community events

VolunteerDo you love Brockwell Park? Can you spare a few hours of your time to help with the MADD for Brockwell Park 2014 community events programme?

We require honest and reliable volunteers to help with:

  • setting up and dismantling community events at start and end. With others, this involves putting out about 50 chairs and a basic PA System.
  • collecting donations from the public. The funds help meet the cost of liability insurance for the next year’s events programme.
  • handing out and collecting completed event evaluation forms; and giving directions to park users as necessary.
  • you’d be part of a team of experienced volunteers helping to make sure that the event runs smoothly – and you also get to see a great event!

We particularly need help with the following up coming events:

  • 6pm-11pm on Saturday 31st May – Herne Hill Free Film Festival’s screening of “Labyrinth” (Certificate U) by the Temple building. The main tasks will include collecting donations and helping audience goers find their way out of the park. We will provide a luminous jacket, however you may need your own torch.
  • 1pm to 4pm – on Sunday 8th June – Convoluted Fairground’s ‘Ghost Dwelling Express’ and Creative Modern’s Urban Dance (two separate events). Help with event set up and dismantling; collecting donations.
  • From 10am on Sunday 13th July – Brockwell Dog Show. Help with event set up and dismantling; collecting donations.
  • From 6pm on Sunday 27th July – World War 1 Memorial Recital. Help with event set up and dismantling; collecting donations.
  • From 10,30am on Sunday 12th October – Herne Hill Music Festival. Help with event set up and dismantling; collecting donations.

If you are interested in helping with any of these events, please email brockwellparkcommunitypartners@gmail.com stating which.

We will share your details with the Friends of Brockwell Park volunteer co-ordinator who kindly administers volunteers for the MADD programme. They will send you further details and confirmation of timing, and arrangements.

Thank you for your support.

Mark Bennett RIP

BPCP is very sad to learn of the death of Lambeth Mayor, Cllr Mark Bennett, today.

Mark was a great supporter of community activities in Brockwell Park. Whether it was helping to judge Brockwell Park’s much loved annual Dog Show, chairing the First World War commemorative meetings, presiding over the Friends of Brockwell Park’s tree dedication or paying a visit to our community stalls at the Lambeth Country Show his support for Brockwell Park’s activities and its volunteers was simply outstanding.

He will be sorely missed.
