Do You Want To Help Us?

 
Some of the volunteers who helped with the 
2015 Devizes Food And Drink Festival on Market Day.

Do you want help us put on the next Festival?

The Food Festival is a genuine community event
and we need people willing to help to put it on
 for the people of Devizes.

There are a variety of things you can do,
 many are quite straightforward and short (but invaluable)
There is scope for getting more involved if you want to.
You don't have to attend meetings if that's not your thing. 

New to Devizes?
This is a great way to meet people 
and get involved in the Community!
