Would you like to Volunteer to help at the Howick Santa Parade this year?

There’s no requirement to attend meetings.

“Fill the form in and be a community hero.”

Volunteer roles are as follows:
Float Registration – Float Order – Cars & Characters (collating characters to correct vehicles) – Entertainment officer – Parade Marshall/Walker – Assisting the elderly & Special needs area – Sausage Sizzle – Setup on the day – Packdown on the day – Lollie / Merchandise distribution – Moore Street Liason Officer – Give it a go Kids Section (Uxbridge Road)- VIP Kids After Party – Crowd Control

The parade is on Sunday, December 13. Pre-parade entertainment is 11am-1pm while the parade itself begins at 1.30pm sharp and runs for around one hour.
