Call to arms for more 2019 Upwelling Festival volunteers
MORE volunteers are greatly needed to help coordinate the 11th annual Upwelling Festival, committee president Gordon Page said.
To be held on Saturday, November 2, just six locals have put up their hand to organise one of Portland’s biggest weekends of the year, which attracts thousands of people to Bentinck St and the foreshore.
“We’re still looking for volunteers, especially helpers on the day,” Mr Page said.
“We have six volunteers on the committee and we’re looking for at least three more people to put up their hand.
“We need to spread the load so that everyone isn’t taking on two roles at once.”
