A smogasboard of Feast stats

One of our key volun­teers — Kirsty Edwards — reflects on some things that make the feast, well, the Feast!

This month’s Feast had a fab­ulous atmo­sphere – the sun shin­ing cer­tainly helped. I think other things that seem to be com­ing togeth­er is the mix of stalls and enter­tain­ment – there is a real buzz at every Hub.

As a volun­teer myself I am blown away by the help people offer — the eager help­ers who are smil­ing for the 6am starts, and still smil­ing at the 6pm fin­ish. Ideally we would have more people at either end of the day as the more people we have power­ing the Feast the easi­er it is for every­one. Check out anoth­er one of Emily’s video that she produced to encourage more volunteers – I love it.

If you are read­ing this and still on the fence, come along to our weekly meet­ings – they’re from 6.30pm every Tues­day at The Rail­way which is next to Tulse Hill train sta­tion. We’re a friendly bunch and want to meet you. We don’t want to make you do any­thing that you don’t want to, but obvi­ously we’d like your tal­en­ted self for as much time as you can spare, espe­cially on Mar­ket days. How­ever if you can’t com­mit reg­u­larly, there are always small jobs to do – why not hand fly­ers out­side your local train sta­tion for half an hour one morn­ing or even­ing?

Whilst hav­ing a post Feast glass of wine I star­ted to think about some stats from the day and so in no par­tic­u­lar order…

• 200 saus­age rolls eaten
• 270 metres of bunt­ing used
• 4 Hubs full of happy stall­hold­ers
• 1 banjo
• 2 Korean dance
• 1001 neigh­bours meet­ing each other for the first time

Every­one can do some­thing…
