Summer Gala 2018

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO ON THE GALA We are looking for some volunteers, with a bit of time to spare not only to help us earlier in the day but also to help us with some new stalls we have planned, mainly children's games but also other stalls as well.
This will help us raise some money to do some of the jobs we have planned - restoring the ice house, improving paths etc. You won't need to give us your time all day, we want you to enjoy the gala too, but even an odd hour or two would help so we can perhaps plan a timetable of help. It would be much appreciated.
Please can you get in touch with Liz - 07721912382 or message us on facebook - Friends of Colwick Woods, if you can help.
