The   Show   is   entirely   staffed   by   volunteers,   and   if   you   are   able   to   help   over   the   Show   weekend helping   to   set   up   tables   in   the   Marquee,   putting   up   gazebos,   selling   our   prize   draw   tickets,   taking money   at   the   two   entrances,   directing   traffic   or   clearing   up   at   the   end,   you   won't   even   have   to   pay   to come   in!         And   you   will   have   the   satisfaction   of   keeping   this   very   special   Show   going   for   the   benefit of the community.  Please leave us a message via the website if you’d like to join us. We’re   also   recruiting   key   Show   Managers.      The   Show   would   not   take   place   without   those   who   do   all the   advance   planning   or   take   on   major   supervisory   jobs   over   the   Show   weekend.      Every   year   our team   of   managers   needs   one   or   two   people   to   replace   those   who   have   stepped   down.         This   year   we need   someone   to   mastermind   the   Traffic   plan ,   including   the   Park   and   Ride   and   various   car   parks.        Or   maybe   you   could   take   on   the   management   of   the   marquee    mainly   over   Show   weekend, overseeing   the   setting   up   and   the   volunteer   afternoon   stewards   while   the   public   admire   the   entries on   Show   Day,   working   alongside   the   Show   Secretary?      Meanwhile,   our   Show   Secretary   is   looking for   an   'apprentice'   Show   Secretary    to   learn   the   ropes   of   preparing   the   schedule,   finding   judges, planning   the   detailed   layout   of   the   marquee   and   much   else.      Do   ring   me   for   an   informal   chat   about any of these roles or leave us all a message on the website. So   keep   the   date   free,   look   out   for   our   posters,   fliers   and   website   for   the   latest   news.      And   why   not volunteer to help carry the Show into next year; Emsworth Horticultural Society’s centenary year.
