Stewards Required!

Stewards are urgently required for the following meets planned:

We require stewards for the last week of Uppertown Farm 10th August until 18th August and Stewards for the first week of Darley Dale for our Temporary Holiday site.

We require stewards for our weekend meet at Hollington End Farm July 12th-14th 2019.

If you are interested in stewarding a Meet or Temporary Holiday Site and planning to attend one anyway, why don’t you volunteer to steward and get your sites fees paid by the club? If you steward 3 or more meets you’ll also get a free ticket to Rewind or Bonfire night or another weekend meet.

It’s not a huge ask, the committee have done the hard work planning and leading activities, booking the meet and making sure everything is in place. We need your help to take money on arrival, direct to the facilities and show people where to pitch.

If you have any questions, or can volunteer, please contact Brett Sisson (+44 7737 164844) or Brian Hewitt (+44 7502 378318) or any other member of the committee.

Remember without stewards we don’t have meets!

Ted needs your help!

Please help Ted fill the Stewards Sheet for 2019!

If you are able to steward a meet for the DA (which means collecting the money on the gate and putting a few signs out when you arrive), please get in touch with Ted Walters. Remember that if you steward the meet, the DA will pay your site fees – free camping!
