Would you like to have a go in assisting marshals with a range of activities including tombola, beach competitions, parades, setting up areas for events and attractions and guiding the general public as required?

Those who volunteer on their own, or with others, and take part would find this role interesting, a good experience, mixing with a friendly team and, of course, good fun as well as you are supplied with food and drink.

Volunteers can just opt for half a day to see what they think, and, if they wish, can do a full day or even more.

For the younger volunteer you could add this to a CV as well.

You can do it with your friends.

So if you are 16 and over and are interested in having a go then please contact Mike Nightingale direct on 07970 614035 or email: whitbyregatta@live.co.uk
