Be a Harlow Carnival event volunteer!

Wednesday, 3 May, 2017

As part of ongoing celebrations for Harlow’s 70 Birthday, Harlow Council is organising a Carnival on Sunday 23 July 2017. The Carnival will travel from The Stow to the Town Park where the procession will lead in to the Linkfest music event at the bandstand. There will be a number of dressed motorised floats and walking/marching groups in the procession and these will be themed throughout the ages from 1940 to the present day.

The safety and overall success of the event is hugely dependent on Council staff and volunteers. We are recruiting volunteers to work alongside our staff as Community Event Stewards. Stewards duties are most likely to include accompanying the Carnival along the predetermined route; ensuring members of the public do not interrupt the flow of the procession; managing and directing spectators and assisting members of the public with enquiries about the event. Stewards may also be asked to oversee allocated car parking areas and assist with temporary road closures.

Whilst the times of work may vary slightly depending on what duties individuals are assigned, we anticipate that Stewards will be required to work between approximately 9am and 2pm. A full briefing and final details of the event will be given to all Stewards ahead of the event.

Your support for this exciting community event will be very much appreciated - please contact Christine Selby on 01279 446192 email: or Janet Jackson on 01279 446004 email: as soon as possible to register your interest. Please also feel free to share this information with family and friends who you think may wish to support the event.
