Nettlebed Art and Craft Show needs more help

To keep Nettlebed Art and Craft Show on the road we need more help with setting up on Friday 3rd August from 11.30 am. This would involve rearranging school furniture, setting up screens and tables... so a bit of a workout for someone who likes to keep fit. Just let me know what sort of times you could manage. Stewarding duties are available on Saturday 4th 11.00 to 12.30 and between 12.30 to 3.00 pm and on Sunday 5th  3.00 to 5.00 pm. These would be light duties to help welcome our guests and give other stewards a break. Quite social really. Then help would be welcome to take it all down, any time from 5 pm onwards. Once purchasers and artists have collected their items between 5.00 and 7.00 pm,  it will be quite physical work to get Nettlebed Community hall back to rights. Just let me know what you could do. Any help gratefully received by the Nettlebed Art Society Committee. Contact me:...

Nettlebed Art Society would love some help after the fete

Hallo Everyone, Nettlebed Art Society has a very small committee so we would love some help after Nettlebed Fete on Saturday evening or Sunday . We need to get the "A" frame, which is along the main road taken down, turned over and repainted with this year's art and craft show dates. Then it needs putting back up the during the first week of July. These jobs could be divided up so that one person takes it down and if necessary bring it to my house, another does the repainting ( think we have paint in stock) and then someone to help put it up on the main road again. If you can help with any of this, please contact nettlebedas@gmail.com or phone me on 01491 641138 ...
