Ilminster Victorian Christmas Festival and Christmas Lights needs your help

Ilminster's famous Victorian Christmas Festival and Christmas Lights  is just 11 weeks away on Friday 17th November.  It will be even bigger and better this year with a more impressive Lantern Parade, an earlier start in the Food Court so you can grab a meal before the Lights are switched on, and all the usual bands, choirs, puppets and children's fun fair.  Plus we are planning a special new event, details to be released soon.

If you can spare a few hours to help out as a steward or marshal on the night you would be very welcome.  We need up to ten responsible people, male or female and 18+ years who are prepared to patrol the area from 5.00 to 9.00pm to act as a point of contact for visitors and to report any misbehaviour or act as road marshals.  It would also be helpful if a couple of people were available from 4.00pm to help set up gazebos, etc.   Contact Mike Fry-Foley on 01460 54364 or
