Volunteers needed for Cranleigh Christmas Lights Switch-On
As a major public event, a huge amount of planning and organisation is required.
Our Christmas Lights sub-committee has already met twice this year and plans are well progressed for the event. We do however need a lot of volunteers to ensure this event runs smoothly.
One of the biggest tasks requiring volunteers is manning the road closure. We will be applying to close Cranleigh High Street between 5pm and 7pm, which requires a total of 15 volunteers to cover several different road closure and warning points. These volunteers will be needed between 4pm and 7.30pm.
We also need 4 volunteers to assist with placing traffic management signs around the village between 8am and 11am in the morning.
There are also volunteer opportunities for putting together the stage and marquee in the morning (between 8am and midday) and crowd safety marshals between 4pm and 7pm.
This event can only run safely with enough willing volunteers. We are appealing to Chamber members, family and friends to step forward and help us make the Cranleigh Christmas Lights Switch-On a success this year.
This is an event that brings so much happiness to families, who come out to enjoy the programme of entertainment, stalls and late-night Christmas shopping.
If you are able to help, even if it’s only for a couple of hours, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add your name to the roster.
