Marketing Team Volunteers Sought

The club had a very successful 2018 attracting a lot of new memberships due to a stand selling the club at local events. Due to this we are running the same again this year and we are looking for volunteers to help run a stand at local boat jumbles and fun days. The good news is that if you volunteer to come along and help out not only do you complete some participatory hours but you also get free entry to the event.
