Could you help to make the next Chesterton Festival even better?
The tenth Chesterton Festival was a great success, with the Fun day attracting more families than ever who enjoyed a wide range of entertainment in the arena and the fun zone, and an excellent variety of stalls. Other events during the week added to the mix, and encouraged more participation from local residents. We hope the Festival has become a fixture in the local calendar, but to ensure this we need new volunteers to help to plan and organise it. We meet just 5 times a year, and it would be great if we could find volunteers who can help with publicity and fundraising, as well as helping on the Fun Day with setting up and managing the site and packing up at the end. In return we are now part of Cambridge’s Time Credits scheme, so volunteers can earn Time Credits by working with us.
