The Hanwell Hootie is back, on Saturday 2 April, and it needs volunteers.
Ealing Council officers helped to set up the popular music festival a few years ago and it is getting bigger than ever, with backing from the council, local businesses and the global music manufacturer Marshall Amplification. This will be its fourth year and you can get involved.
Volunteers are needed to help guide the public turning up to see the dozens of bands performing at pubs all over Hanwell; but there is also a real need for first-aiders, so if you have completed a minimum of a one-day first aid course then they would like to hear from you.
If you volunteer, you get a few perks in return: An official Hootie T-shirt; snacks; queue-jumping priority entry to venues when you are off-duty; possibly drinks – and the grateful appreciation of the dedicated team behind the event.
Nikki Foley will be organising volunteers this year, so if you are interested in participating, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your availability for Saturday, 2 April. Volunteers are normally needed for three-hour or four-hour shifts between the hours of 11am-11pm.
