Rochford Beer & Cider Festival Programme

Thank you if you've volunteered in the past for our Beer & Cider Festival. This year, we are trying to modernise our volunteer admin. Now is the time to fill in the Volunteer/Staffing form, which is now on-line at
Everyone is welcome - you don’t need any special skills or experience, just a willing attitude and, ideally, a taste for real ale and/or cider. The more people that can help the easier and more fun it is for everyone.

Volunteering sessions are in blocks of 2.5 hours during festival opening and we also need help for set-up and take down. If you can help for even one session that would be great! The benefits of volunteering (apart from the satisfaction it brings) are:

- Beer/cider provided at the festival

- Food provided when you work for 6 hours or more in a day

- Reduced cost to attend a post-Festival party (usually held in January), but free if you work shifts totalling 18 hours or more.

As ever, we are especially in need of fit and strong people to help with the set-up and take down on Sunday 17 and Sunday 24 November. You don’t have to come along for the whole of set-up and take down – even a couple of hours would be great. We generally need more people to serve beer and cider on Thursday and Friday nights.

If you’d like to talk about what it might be like to volunteer, please do contact Chris Rouse at ku.gro.armac.ees@gniffats, or if necessary, by phone on 07824 726108 or 01799 531582.
