Volunteer Call Out

We’re looking for volunteers from St Helens to help make a season of spectacular events shine, could you help?

July 2021 will see three new park spaces, installed right in the heart of St Helens, and Earlestown. This is part of a wider project to support the recovery of St Helens after the Pandemic. Whether you’re a local volunteer, community organisation, food/drinks vendor, or business, there will be opportunities to take part.

St Helens Night Time Economy are looking for:

● Pocket Park Build Volunteers- between 21st and 30th July we’re looking for people to lend a hand moving structures, painting, and planting.As well as time they need donations of paints, plants, and soil to bring the parks to life! If you want to be the first to see these awesome structures- get in touch!

● Pocket Park Volunteer Rangers- as these parks will be in place for some time, they're hoping for a team of park rangers to lend a hand in making sure they keep looking
amazing. If you could water the plants, log repairs needed, then they’d love to hear from you

● Donations of materials- they’re particularly on the lookout for: paint, plants, soil, vinyl, perspex and timber to incorporate into the park structures

● Festival volunteers- to assist in the successful running of each of the three events, from the initial set up to the tear down at the end. If you like getting stuck in and/or
talking to people this could be for you
● Local Independent businesses and organisations including: businesses, CICs, charities and community organisations, artists & crafts people. There are opportunities for stalls, sponsorship/advertising, workshops and other involvement. The event themes are: family, environmental sustainability, and light- so they’d particularly welcome partners who have one of those themes as their focus and hope to hear from many of you to keep you updated and involved

The three festivals will be themed as follows:
Family Fest Saturday 28th August: A fun-filled day for all the family to celebrate the end of Summer, transforming St Helens into a village fete.

Green Festival (working title) - Saturday 30th October: Highlighting issues of environmental sustainability in a creative and engaging way.

Light and Bright Festival - 4th December Light sculptures and a lantern parade made up of community lanterns will provide the centre point for this celebration of the bright future of St Helens.
