The ART Conference 2017 is coming and the call goes out for helpers

This year on Sat 11th -Sun 12th of March we (W&P) will be proudly hosting The Association of Ringing Teachers AGM and Awards Ceremony in Old Basing Hall, Basing, Basingstoke RG24 7DA.

To make sure the weekend runs as smoothly as possible the organising Committee will need volunteers to help move tables and chairs, prepare and set up lunch,clear away and also do teas and coffees in the breaks, so nothing too taxing.

We will need help from volunteers to make good quality sweet treats IE flapjacks and tray bakes all covered in cling film (a small remuneration will be given to cover ingredients costs). Others will help with the buffet lunches making fresh salads and sandwiches on the day.

It would be lovely if you could look in your diaries now and see if you can offer 1 or more time slots on either days and hopefully we won’t have to press-gang too many people… because that would be unfriendly.

Pete, I and will be there from start to finish and appreciate your offers of help.

These are the time slots that need to be filled.
