More Helpers Needed for King Harold’s Army!

The King Harold Day organizers are appealing to residents of the area and others for help on King Harold Day.

This major event in Waltham Abbey is now in its fourth year, and attracts attendances of approximately 4,500 people.   There are many attractions in the Abbey Gardens, the Abbey Church and Churchyard.

But it is organized by a small group of six people.   That is quite sufficient in the months leading up to the event, but many more people are needed on the actual day.   Some members of the church and other friends are persuaded to help, but more are needed.

The sort of help required is acting as stewards, helping at the various admission points, helping to put up gazebos, tents and direction signs, helping with sales in the merchandising tent, and acting as message takers and runners.

We are not asking anyone to sit around at endless committee meetings or get involved in a lot of work in putting the event together.   What we need is people who are prepared to give us a few hours of help on Saturday 13 October.   People who we can rely on to turn up, and get stuck in with whatever needs doing so that we open on time and keep everything going during the day.

The opening hours are from 10.00am to 4.00pm, and that is when we want help with stewarding and admissions, but we also want people from 8.00am for putting up signs, etc, and for the hour or so after we close to help pack everything away.

We would be most grateful for any volunteers, and can promise them a busy but very entertaining day.

Anyone who is prepared to help should in the first instance contact Isabelle at Philpott’s Tearooms in Church Street, Waltham Abbey, or, if they are not in Waltham Abbey, could telephone 07713 327380.
