Glebe Society Community Festival Volunteer BadgeJanice Challinor coordinated all the volunteer roles required for the duration of the Festival – including bump in and bump out. Because of Janice’s hard work, we were never short of volunteers.

Janice says: ‘It was gratifying to find that volunteers did come to the fore in time for the Festival, so despite my earlier concerns about numbers we were able to provide a friendly face and genuine heartfelt welcome to all who came for every day of the Anniversary week. Thank you all for your input. … Altogether over 70 members who contributed in varying volunteer capacities to make it all happen.’

Many volunteers assisted throughout the Festival, including those who staffed the front desk to welcome visitors. Many volunteers are mentioned throughout this website in relation to particular aspects of the Festival. Here we thank those volunteers not mentioned elsewhere:

Volunteer BIG Thank You Party

Monday evening on the 1 July 2019 was time for many of the volunteers to look around at the empty community space and think about the great job they had all done to make our Community Festival such a success.

Many friendships have been made and new found talents discovered – a relaxed and enjoyable evening. We were so pleased that so many of our new friends from the Glebe Art Show were able to be with us -– what a valuable contribution these wonderful people made to the success of the Festival. We enjoyed the 1960s background music provided by Jane Gatwood.

Jude Paul, Jane Gatwood, Jane Fissenden, Janice Challinor and Mark Stapleton hosted us all at this casual final evening. A lovely way to end such a successful Festival.
