We are launching our appeal for Stewards for this year’s National Garden Railway Show at the Peterborough Arena on June 26th.  As usual we need volunteers to help with the setting up of the Show on Friday 25th June and on Saturday 26th June, the day of the Show.

On the Friday, setting up starts at 08:00 and carries on until about 18:00. For this we need a whole range of skills and abilities (standing-up, sitting-down and walking-around jobs).  Then on the Saturday, we start at 07:00 with completing the setting up before the big moment when the visitors are admitted, this year at 09:30.

Stewards are required at all times on both days.  You are not obliged to turn up at the opening times.  As usual we have many exciting job opportunities for all ages and abilities.  This year, having a good supporting team of stewards will be more important than ever to make the Show a success, despite the difficult times.

As a volunteer, you will get free all-day entry to the Show, even though the Show will have to be in two separate sessions. So please contact me at stewarding@16mm.org.uk and let me know when you will be available and if you have any preferred duties or restrictions.
