Become a FEASTie.…

Did you know that there are around 30 enthu­si­ast­ic local volun­teers behind the run­ning of FEAST?

By becom­ing one of the team you can have a real role in help­ing to shape the local com­munity and have a real impact in the place you live.

Over the past year volun­teers have not only planned, man­aged and run a monthly mar­ket, but have also held a three day week­end of free cinema srceen­ings, com­mis­sioned and developed a new brand iden­tity for FEAST, sup­por­ted work exper­i­ence for local school stu­dents, held weekly volun­teers meet­ings and gen­er­ally had a lot of fun. We are con­tinu­ing to work on the forth­com­ing FEAST mar­kets as well as the Winter Lights event to be held on Sat­urday 7 Decem­ber.

Some of our volun­teers have been involved in FEAST since the very begin­ning in 2011, some have only recently got involved and are keen to help make West Nor­wood a bet­ter place to live. There is a core group who attend the ser­i­ous meet­ings and talk about fin­ance, gov­ernance and future strategy without which we couldn’t func­tion. Most volun­teers, how­ever, come along to the weekly Tues­day meet­ings at the Rail­way Tav­ern, Tulse Hill, 6.30pm – 8pm or stop by the mar­ket on FEAST days to help at hub tables, hand out leaf­lets or get crafty with the children’s activ­it­ies.

FEAST is always on the look-out for new, local volun­teers to help fill such roles as, Hub Lead­er, Volun­teer Coordin­at­or, Enter­tain­ments Coordin­at­or, FEAST day stew­ards and help­ers. It doesn’t mat­ter wheth­er you can offer all day help on mar­ket days, or just a couple of hours every now and again, every­one is wel­come.

If you are inter­ested in help­ing run FEAST or would like to find out how you can get involved, please email
