Can you help at Gala Fest?
Framlingham Gala Fest is organised and run by a small hard working team of volunteers, but help is needed across the weekend to make sure things run smoothly for everyone attending the events.
There are a number of ways you can get involved and even just one hour is greatly appreciated.
To let us know if you can volunteer or for more details please contact Tim Scotchmer on 07876654902 or email
Car parking is available at Framlingham Sports Club across the weekend and volunteers are needed to direct drivers into position and take payment.
You can do as little as 1 or 2 hours, or more if you are available, on the Saturday, Sunday or Monday.
For more details about car parking and available time slots please contact Tim Scotchmer on 07876654902 or email
Marshals are needed to make sure the Team Duathlon competitors follow the course correctly and get round safely or alert the race director about an incident.
Multiple marshals are needed around the 2k and 5k run courses, plus out on the road around the cycle course.
The Team Duathlon takes place on the Saturday morning for around 2 hours from start to finish.
For more details or to let us know you would like to be a marshal please contact Tim Scotchmer on 07876654902 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Setting up / Disassemble
For each part of the Gala Fest weekend things need to be set up beforehand and taken down afterwards and cleared up.
Setting up includes putting up tents, marking out the Team Duathlon course and staging. Tidying up, taking down the tents and litter picking takes place after each event.
Volunteers are needed across the weekend so if you can help at any point or would like more details please contact Tim Scotchmer on 07876654902 or firstname.lastname@example.org
