Do you want help us put on the next Festival?

Food fans braved grey clouds and gusting winds,
but still enjoyed the 2017 Grand Festival Market .

Do you want help us put on the next Festival?

The Food Festival is a genuine community event
and we really do need more people willing to help to put it on.

There are a variety of things you can do in combination with others or on your own.
Many are quite straightforward and only require a short amount of time,

but there is plenty of scope for getting more involved if you want to.
There's a selection below.
