Volunteer at the fête


Here’s your chance to get involved with one of our village’s most popular and worthwhile events!  Sherfield’s superb annual fête is organised and run entirely by volunteers, and help is always needed, not just on the day of the fête, but throughout the year.

Our organising committee meets regularly to develop the fête’s theme, select and book the attractions, and plan the whole event and all the surrounding activities. We’re always keen to hear from people with new and fresh ideas, and the more people who pitch in, the less time each needs to spend on it.

Here are just some of the jobs that we rely on people like you to do:

  • Being part of our social media effort on Facebook and Twitter
  • Investigating and booking appealing attractions for the fête
  • Taking a turn to man a village fundraising stall – meet your neighbours!
  • Welcoming visitors to the fête, collecting donations, and handing out programmes
  • Stewarding, coordinating stallholders and volunteers and assisting with problems
  • Cooking and serving on the barbecue
  • Using your art and design skills to help produce publicity material
  • Marshalling the car park
  • Collecting donated items in the week or so before the fête
  • Setting up and taking down marquees and gazebos
  • Helping the clearing up team
